IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Porcelain Maid

IRVING BERLIN
"Porcelain Maid"

[Verse:]
Porc'lain boy is feeling so terribly lonely
Just because he's fallen in love with a maid
Though she's very near him
She don't seem to hear him
When he sings his little sad serenade

[Refrain:]
Porc'lain Maid, I'm calling to you
From my teakwood stand

Porc'lain Maid, I'm feeling so blue
Please let me hold your hand

How I long to cuddle and coo
'Neath a bamboo shade

I wanna design a
Home over in China
For my Porc'lain Maid

[2nd refrain:]
Porc'lain Boy, I'm list'ning to you
From my teakwood stand

Porc'lain Boy, if you're feeling blue
Come here and hold my hand

If you long to cuddle and coo
'Neath a bamboo shade

Why don't you design a
Home over in China
For your Porc'lain Maid
