Goopy Geer

(Herman Hupfeld)

Masqueraders (Savoy Hotel Orpheans)


Oh! I'm going to sing you a little song
No, Why. Goopy Geer
Oh! I'm asking you my little ditty
No, Why. Goopy Geer

Hang there Goopy Geer
Sit yourself down over here
Time to play piano
Come on caress that old club ear

Somewhere every night
Goopy’s in that old limelight
Mess around and women honk him
He's a musical racketeer

He'll play that old strutters ball
Or any new tune at all
Someday he'll pack the Albert Hall

He has not studied music
He does not know the notes
But you should hear young Goopy Geer
He plays piano and he plays by ear

He's just a slave to music
No time to sow his oats
And helped by cheer way Goopy Geer
Plays piano and he does by ear

They make a fuss over him
Does he make gold
Oh! Then it's no wonder he's so
Temperamental

He needs longer keyboard
They'll build him one no fear
For you should hear young Goopy Geer
He plays piano and he plays by ear

He plays a little bit of Bach
And they hold him too
And you should hear that guy play Blues

And when he's hot
He always plays his Cyrus Scott
