The Lady in Red song lyrics

Song lyrics to The Lady in Red, music by Allie Wrubel, lyrics: Mort Dixon, from the film In Caliente, also performed by Desi Arnaz in the I Love Lucy episode Lucy is Enciente

Say! Have you ever met the girl who’s the toast of the town,
A work of art without question,
Who gives your heart a queer congestion?

Say! Have you met the dream in the red velvet gown?
If you will pardon my suggestion,
You’d better write her number down.

I mean that lady in red
Everyone’s crazy for that lady in red
Is she a ducky, or what do you call a personality?

Oh! The lady in red
Is fresh as a daisy when the town is in bed,
Dancing and dining and shining with originality.
She’s very proper, she’s nothing more than a pal,
But oh me! And oh my!
You’d never stop’er, she’d be a dangerous gal
If she should ever meet the right guy.

She’s the gay young bird all the magazines feature,
‘Pon my word, she’s the zippiest creature, Yah! Yah!

She’s the valentine all the movies are after,
She won’t sign cause she really don’t hafta.
I declare, and so beware

Of the lady in red
Everyone’s crazy for that lady in red
Is she a ducky, or what do you call a personality?

Oh! The lady in red
Is fresh as a daisy when the town is in bed,
Dancing and dining and shining with originality.
She’s very proper, she’s nothing more than a pal,
But oh me! And oh my!
You’d never stop’er, she’d be a dangerous gal
If she should ever meet the right guy.

Oh! The lady in red,
The fellows are crazy for the lady in red.
Is she a ducky, or what do you call a personality?
She’s got vitality
Say! Have you ever met the girl who’s the toast of the town,
