FRED ASTAIRE lyrics - A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody

FRED ASTAIRE
"A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody"

[From "Blue Skies"]

I have an ear for music, and I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pretty girlie, with each pretty tune that's played.
They go together, like sunny weather goes with the month of May.
I've studied girls and music, so I'm qualified to say

A pretty girl is like a melody that haunts you night and day,
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start up on a marathon and run a-round your brain.
You can't escape she's in your memory. by morning night and noon.
She will leave you and then come back a-gain,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune.
