Song lyrics to Let’s K-nock K-nees (1931) Music and Lyrics by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel, performed by Betty Grable and Edward Everett Horton in The Gay Divorcee

Betty Grable: You’re my type of a shy type of a beau, dear …

Edward Everett Horton: Beg pardon?

Betty Grable: So let’s do things …

Edward Everett Horton: Oh, really …

Betty Grable: I’ll teach you a few things …

Edward Everett Horton: Are you talking to me?

Betty Grable: Now who said just what you said, for I know dear …

Edward Everett Horton: No, no, I’ve been reading …

Betty Grable: I’m not bashful, I’m actual and pash-ful …

Edward Everett Horton: I’m beginning to sense that!

Betty Grable: When you’re near I feel so “let’s play house”-y … Oh you make me feel so Mickey Mouse-y!

Edward Everett Horton: Well, for a well-known lawyer at a place like this …

Betty Grable: You’re sweet and so agreeable, and I feel so “gosh, oh gee”-able, do for me or I’ll flee — and let’s k-nock k-nees!
You are so “bill and coo”-able, and I’m so “I love you”-able, come cuddle closer please, and let’s k-nock k-nees!

Edward Everett Horton: Is this some sort of a game?

Betty Grable: They say make hay while the sun shines …

Edward Everett Horton: An agricultural trend.

Betty Grable: So lets, oh lets, make hay, hay, hay, while the moon shines!
My heart’s so tick tock tick-able, your lips are so lipstick-able, you know your ABC’s so let’s k-nock k-nees!

Edward Everett Horton: [calling for Fred Astaire’s character] Guy! … Oh, never mind.
It’s so incomprehensible, it doesn’t seem quite sensible, and yet I like it. Please! Let’s knock knees. [they begin knocking knees] It’s almost hoi polloi-able, and yet it’ss quite enjoyable, ooh I’m full of rhapsody. [pushes Betty Grable off his lap] Too many people here. [begins dancing] Ripping, skipping, lightly bounding …

Betty Grable: Stop it, knock it [knock their knees together]

Edward Everett Horton: Really, this is most astounding.

Betty Grable: It makes one feel most thrill-able …

Edward Everett Horton: Well, we’ve exhausted every syllable.

Betty Grable: I crave frivolity.

Edward Everett Horton: I’ve got one … let’s knock knees.

[dancing girls, others dance]

Everyone: Let’s knock knees!

Edward Everett Horton: Oh, hello!
