Oh! Johanna

(Marjorie Lawrence)

New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

Oh! Johanna
Oh! Johanna, I like you for your manner
I like you for your eyes of dreamy blue
Oh! Johanna, don’t be a hard-boiled Hannah
But join me in a little bill and coo, do
Oh! Johanna, although I’ve not a tanner
The heart that beats for you is good and true
Oh! Johanna, I should like to shout “hosanna”
Johanna, Johanna, Johanna

Oh! Johanna I love your bloom cheek
Oh! what a beauty
That nose, them there eyes, and that there's two
Oh! sir. Which one
The on the bottom
Oh! Johanna your teeth are just like stars
Like stars?
Aye, they come out every night
And your fresh completion
So fresh every morning
Oh! look, is she in pain?
Or can it be just a smile
Ooh, am I in pain?
Oh what, Am I performing?
Ooh, that's unfair
Behind the after mirror?
The marks on your face

Johanna, marry me
Marry me

Oh well that's different
