A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody

Album: Great American Composers (1919)
  • I have an ear for music,
    And I have an eye for a maid.
    I like a pretty girlie,
    With each pretty tune that's played.
    They go together,
    Like sunny weather goes with the month of may.
    I've studied girls and music,
    So I'm qualified to say

    A pretty girl is like a melody
    That haunts you night and day,
    Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
    She'll start up-on a marathon
    And run around your brain.
    You can't escape she's in your memory.
    By morning night and noon.
    She will leave you and then come back again,
    A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune. Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
