I Love an Esquire Girl lyrics   — €” Music by Roger Edens, lyrics by Lew Brown and Ralph Freed, sung in the movie DuBarry Was A Lady starring Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, Gene Kelly

When I buy an Esquire,
The bible of the well-dressed man,
My pulse jumps ten points higher,
But not because of each dapper dan!
I don’t go in for fashions,
I forget the authors’ names,
The only thing I go for
Are those beautiful dames!

I love an Esquire girl,
If you don’t love an esquire girl,
You won’t like steak,
Apple strudel,
Angel cake,
Soup with noodle.
You would eat an oyster but you’d throw away the pearl
If you don’t love an Esquire girl!

I love a Varga girl;
If you don’t love a Varga girl,
You’d laugh out loud at Whistler’s mother,
Frankenstein’s sure to be your brother!
You would buy a Persian lamb and cut off every curl
If you don’t love a Varga girl!

Those lovely pictures by Hourel
I hang on every wall,
They’re so swell
I have to yell,
— €œHourel for evermore! — €.

I crave a lovely girl;
If you don’t crave a lovely girl,
You’ve got a head but what’s below it?
You’re half dead but you don’t know it!
And if Lana Turner doesn’t set your brain awhirl,
Then you don’t love a lovely girl!

If you still don’t love a lovely girl,
There’s something you should see;
The calendar that we present
For nineteen forty three!

January, you resolve to start the year out fine,
February, you make every heart a Valentine.
March, you are just a bit unruly,
April, you’re so April fooly!
May, you’re so romantic with your magic touch of Spring,
June, you have each couple hoping wedding bells will ring!
July brings out the good old Yankee Doodle in me,
And August, what a wonderful vacation you’d be!
Sweet September, you arrive and disappear too soon,
But you bring October and the lovely harvest moon!
November makes us thankful for the blessings we hold dear,
December makes us realise it’s been a lovely year!

I crave a lovely girl;
If you don’t crave a lovely girl,
You’ve got a head but what’s below it?
You’re half dead but you don’t know it!
And if Lana Turner doesn’t set your brain awhirl,
Then you don’t love a lovely girl!
