IRVING BERLIN lyrics - A Couple Of Song And Dance Men

IRVING BERLIN
"A Couple Of Song And Dance Men"

[As sung in film by Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire:]

[Both:] In us you see a couple of song and dance men
[Bing:] I'm the song
[Fred:] I'm the dance

[Both:] For laughter, joy and happiness, we're advance men
[Bing:] With a song
[Fred:] And a dance

[Bing:] I sing for my supper
[Fred:] I dance for my lunch
[Bing:] I croon when the landlord comes around

[Both:] For miles around the women and children pass out cold
[Bing:] When my voice hits the air
[Fred:] And my feet hit the ground

[Bing:] Last night
[Fred:] Out in the moonlight
[Bing:] I came to serenade
[Fred:] A very pretty maid
[Bing:] I sang her to sleep with "Asleep in the Deep"
[Fred:] That always makes them collapse
[Bing:] I saw her eyes close, then she started to doze
[Fred:] But she arose when I sounded taps

[Both:] Which goes to show what women will do when we're around
[Bing:] And my voice hits the air
[Fred:] And my feet hit the ground
