Where Did You Get That Girl lyrics — €“ words by Bert Kalmar, music by Harry Puck, 1913

(sung in Three Little Words, starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton)

Lonesome Johnnie Warner, sitting in a corner
of a swell cafe, eating his heart away
because he had no girl,
at another table, sat a girl named Mable
with a fellow who Johnnie knew and his brain began to whirl
The girl had caught his eye and John began to cry.

Johnnie found a corker, started in to walk her
down the avenue.
Down to the parson who would make them man and wife,
Parson Lee received him, and when he relieved him
of the marriage fee Parson Lee
said never on my life, have I seen
such a miss say Johnnie tell me this.

Where did you get that girl? Oh! you lucky devil.
Where did you get that girl? tell me on the level
Have you ever kissed her, if she has a sister lead me, lead me, lead me to her mister
Gee! I wish that I had a girl I
— €˜d love — €˜er I’d love — €˜e Oh goodness
how I’d love — €˜er
If you can find another, I’ll take her home to mother,
Where! Where! Where did you get that girl?

Where did you get that girl? Oh! you lucky devil.
Where did you get that girl? tell me on the level
Have you ever kissed her, if she has a sister lead me, lead me, lead me to her mister
Gee! I wish that I had a girl I’d love — €˜er I’d love — €˜er
Oh goodness how I’d love — €˜er
If she’s here long I’m liable to give away my Bible,
Where! Where! Where did you get that girl?
