The Girl Who Thought ... Part 1

The Girl Who Thought ... Part 1

(Long / Gibson)

Lew Stone & the Monseigneur Band


I'll sing a little ditty that is modest and discreet
It's all about the kind of girl you very seldom meet
Somebody introduced me to a girl from Asia Minor
A girl who thought "Hiking" was a seaside town in China

Where did you meet that girl

Thus families aren't popular in these unhappy days
Young wives that show much intellect in babies and their ways
But one young married lady surely gave our club a bright time
The girl who thought a blinder was a cute last drink at night time

Where did you meet that girl

Some girls are fond of travel and they wouldn't care a hang
If they should meet the leader Of a cut Chicago gang
I heard about a girl who'd never been to foreign places
A girl who though a "Hold Up" was a good strong pair of braces

Where did you meet that girl

I know a lot of girls who've studied Chinese history
They even took the language over cups of China tea
And yet I knew a bright young thing who went through life quite daily
The girl who thought a mandolin was a Chinese ukulele

Where did you meet that girl

When girls go up to London, from the village of their birth
You'd think that they were stranded in a place right off the earth
One lady hadn't brains enough to keep her from the workers
The girl who thought that clowns performed in Piccadilly Circus.

Where did you meet that girl

I've heard it said that girls at Stirling busy themselves all days
But there's one girl I know who'd never make a business day
The wild indicator will be free from all offenses
The lass wore a hat and called it over-heed-expenses

Where did you meet that girl
