If I Had A Girl Like You-1943
Regal Zonophone MR3720Park/Parr-Davies
If I wasn't me but a different sort of chap, what a romeo I'd be.
I'd be able to see, it's an awful handicap when a guys as shy as me.
What happiness might come my way, if I could just speak up and say
I'll bet I could work wonders, seems too good to be true,
I could be a b. marvel if I had a girl like you.
Single handed I'd rescue ship and captain and crew,
I'd be number one hero if I had a girl like you
Id spend my leisure finding hidden treasure,
No-one could measure the things that I do
In the stormiest weather I could eat a pie stew,
I'd become a real sailor if I had a girl like you
I could do without moonlight and give the stars a rest too,
I'd be warm in a snowstorm if I had a girl like you.
All the radio programmes would be strictly taboo,
They could keep their old brainstrust if I had a girl like you.
I'd never long for meals, they ring a gong for,
The shows they throng for I never would view, I'm telling you
I'd have pennies from heaven, I could live in a shoe,
They could take my clothes coupons if I had a girl like you
