I Love Louisa

I Love Louisa lyrics, as performed by Fred Astaire in The Band Wagon, written by Howard Dietz / Arthur Schwartz

How I love a glass of beer
[More beer]
Beer goes very good with beer
[More beer]
When I’m drinking beer I’m thinking, ach life is beer
But there’s someone I love even more than beer

I love Louisa, Louisa loves me
When we rode on the merry-go-round
I kissed Louisa and then Louisa, Louisa kissed me
We were so happy, so happy and free

Ach, ach, Mädchen, beautiful Louisa
Ach, when I choose them, I never want to lose them
Someday, Louisa, Louisa will be
More than just a Fraulein to me

A Frenchman loves a glass of vine
[More beer]
The English think the vhiskey’s fine
[More beer]
And when I comb off, all the foam off I drink a toast
To the Germans and the Mädchen, I loved most

Ich liebe Louisa, Louisa liebt mich. Als wir führen auf dem Wege,
Ich küsste Louisa und dann Louisa, Louisa küsste mich,
Wir waren sehr glücklich, so glücklich und frei. Ach, ach, Mädchen,
Beautiful Louisa.
Ach, when I choose them,
I never want to lose them.
Ach, ach, Mädchen,
Beautiful Louisa.
Ach, when I choose them,
I never want to lose them. Someday Louisa,
Louisa will be
More than just a Fräulein to me.
More beer! More beer!
