Bring on those Wonderful Men [song lyrics]


Song lyrics to Bring on those Wonderful Men, Music by Roger Edens, Lyrics by Earl K. Brent, Sung by Virginia O’Brien in Ziegfeld Follies

Bring on those Wonderful Men is a parody of Here’s to the Girls in Ziegfeld Follies. It’s a very funny song by Virginia O’Brien, in her trademark stone faced style.

All this yap-yap-yap
About glorifying dames
Leaves me like a cold potato
I’d much rather be
With a handsome he
Like Van Johnson who’s a real tomato

For a date with Fred MacMurray
You can bet your life I’d hurry
And a guy like Mischa Auer
Has me completely in his power

In fact most any man I’ve seen
Is the only man for me
Bring on those wonderful men

Bring me an elegant guy
A soldier or sailor
A Gable or Taylor
A short or a tall one
I just wanna call one
My own, private wonderful he
Bring what you can to me

Bring me a guy to pin up
Bring me a prince on a horse
A dark or a light one
I just want to sight one
Who’ll call me his missis
And give with the kisses

I’m afraid I’ve a terrible yen
For those wonderful M-E-N
Amor, Amor
There must be someone for me
But what’s he waiting for?

No hope, no soap
If he don’t appear
I fear I’m at the end of my rope

Oh, bring on a male who ain’t frail
Bring on a man from a cave
Someone to relax with
And pay income tax with

And though he’s from hunger
I’m not getting younger
And I’d like to get on with my plan
To glorify the American man

I know the men are few
But what’s a gal to do?
I’ll get a man before I’m through
Hey, you in the third row: [winks at him]
Bring on those wonderful men!
