IRVING BERLIN
"A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody"

[Verse:]
I have an ear for music
And I have an eye for a maid
I link 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:

[Refrain:]
A pretty girl is like a melody
That haunts you night and day

Just like the strain of a haunting refrain
She'll start upon a marathon
And run around your brain

You can't escape, she's in your memory
By morning, night and noon

She will leave you and then come back again
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune

[Patter:]
[The Humoresque:]
While a string orchestra played
This lovely tune I met a maid
And from the start she set my brain a-whirl
But alas we parted soon
And now I love to hear this tune
For it reminds me of that certain girl

[Mendelsohn's Spring Song:]
Once I met a girlie at the close of spring
I began to woo her and she answered "Yes" that summer
But when I went out to buy the wedding ring
She left me flat and ran off with a drummer

[Massina's Elegy:]
While the cello moaned tenderly this melody
She said to me "I love you"
When the cello fellow was through he said "Adieu"
She said "Me too" and flew

[Offenbach's Barcarolle from "Tales of Hoffman":]
At the opera she said, "My dear
I love you with all my soul
While the singer's filled up my ear
With Offenbach's Barcarolle
When the music died away her love for me grew cold
And I found she told better tales
Than old Hoffman told

[Schubert Serenade:]
Once to a maid, this sweet serenade
I sang with feeling and grace
I vocalized just how much I prized
Her form and beautiful face
Said to say the maiden's husband
Came with a spade
And ruined my serenade

[Schumann's Traumerei:]
We met one evening at a dance
The band was playing, I was saying
Give me just a chance
She told me of a boy in France
And then she vanished and it banished
My romance
