Testo Ladies Of The Chorus – Irving Berlin

Testo della canzone Ladies Of The Chorus di Irving Berlin
Album: This Is The Army (1942
Ladies of the chorus
That’s what we are, it appears
We were inducted and we took a vow
We joined the Army but look at us now
We’re ladies of the chorus
Don’t we look lovely, my dears
In corsets and dresses
And cute golden tresses
To hide the dirt behind our ears

I was a plumber
I quit work last summer
My number come up at the start

I was a printer
I quit work last winter
They okayed my lungs and my heart

I was a farmer
Potato embalmer
They took me away from the plow

I was a packer
I chewed plug terbaccer
I wish I had some of it now

Oh, now we’re in the chorus
Dressed up in girdles that squeeze
We’re here to romance with
To sing and to dance with
A bunch of nerdy guys like these

GUYS: Pardon me, but aren’t you the country maiden?
GALS: Pardon me, but aren’t you the city chap?
GUYS: Cuddle closer won’t you please
I’m about to take a squeeze
GALS: If you do then I will give your face a slap
GUYS: I would love to take you home to meet my mother
I would like to […] mother but I can’t
She will treat you like a queen
GALS: But I’m only seventeen
If you are seventeen, then so’s my aunt

GALS: Hi ho! I want you to behave
GUYS: Hi ho! I think you need a shave

GALS: Do you think that you can get me into pictures?
GUYS: If you’re nice to me I’ll get you on the screen
GALS: How about a movie test?
GUYS: Not with hair upon your chest
GALS: And now it’s time to dance but keep it clean
