IRVING BERLIN lyrics - The Girl On The Magazine Cover

IRVING BERLIN
"The Girl On The Magazine Cover"

[1st verse:]
My head's in a dizzy whirl
Since I met a certain girl
There isn't another like her
She's a matchless pearl
Since I met this maid divine
I do nothing else but pine
Because I know she never could be mine

[Refrain:]
The girl I love
Is on a magazine cover
It seems they painted her just for me

I'd fall in love
If I could ever discover
A little girl quite as nice as she

If I could meet
A girl as sweet
I'd simply claim her
And name her my queen

For if she ever came
I would love her the same
As I love her on the cover of a magazine

[2nd verse:]
My home is a picture book
If ever you came to look
You'd find her in ev'ry corner
And in ev'ry nook
She's fairer than all the queens
And loving her simply means
That I'm kept busy buying magazines
