Testo della canzone Thank You Kind Sir Said She 31 Aug 1910 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] Crowded thoroughfare, people here and there
Dashing up the Avenue
Maiden young and shy, quickly passing by
Something comes in contact with her shoe
Someone’s fallen down, slipped upon the ground
It happens on a slipp’ry street
Kind young gent who saw the accident
Helps the charming lady to her feet

[chorus:] Thank you, kind sir, said she
Welcome, sweet Miss, said he
May I not escort you home?
You may not, I’ll go alone
I’ve a husband, said she
And I’ve a wife, Miss, said he
You needn’t call me up, said she
My phone is one, two, three
Thank you, said he

[2nd verse:] Scene, a near cafe, couple chatting gay
Same young maiden shy and sweet
On the he-male end sits her fellow friend
Same young man who helped her to her feet
Maiden softly speaks, I’ve been sad for weeks
My darling husband failed last year
I’m in debt right up to here, you bet
Fellow whispers something in her ear

[2nd chorus:] Thank you, kind sir, said she
Welcome, sweet Miss, said he
May I not escort you home?
I would hate to go alone
I live here, sir, said she
And so do I, Miss, said he
Don’t dare to call me, said she
I’m always in at three
Thank you, said he
