Testo della canzone Snookey Ookums 21 Feb 1913 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse] There’s a married couple happily
Living in apartment forty-three
I live right next door
In apartment forty-four
Gee! but they’re a mushy he and she
Mushing seems to be their specialty
It would start you walking
If you heard them talking

[chorus:] All day long he calls her
Snooky ookums
Snooky ookums

All they do is talk like babies
She’s his jelly elly roll
He’s her sugey ugar bowl
Here’s the way they bill and coo
Poogy woo, poogy woo, poogy woo

All night long he calls her
Snooky ookums
Snooky ookums
All night long the neighbors shout
Cut it out! cut it out! cut it out!
They cry For goodness sake!
Don’t keep us all awake
With your snooky, ookey, ookey baby talk!

[2nd verse] If you ever heard their mushy song
If you saw how well they get along
You would bet your life
That they weren’t man and wife
He’s a little fellow, four foot tall
Weighing just a hundred clothes and all
She’s a great big lady
Weighs a hundred eighty
