Song lyrics to Row, Row, Row, Lyrics by William Jerome, Music by James V. Monaco, Sung by Lydia Reed and Linda Bennett, Danced by Bob Hope and The Seven Little Foys
Young Johnny Jones, he had a cute little boat,
And all the girlies he would take for a float.
He had girlies by the score;
Sweet little peaches on the shore;
But Johnny was a wisenheimer you know
His steady girl was Flo.
Song lyrics to The Lady’s in Love With You, music by Burton Lane, lyrics by Frank Loesser, performed by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross in Some Like It Hot
If there’s a gleam in her eye
Each time she straightens your tie,
You know the lady’s in love with you!
If she can dress for a date
Without that waiting you hate,
It means the lady’s in love with you!
Song lyrics to The Irish Washerwoman – traditional Irish song, danced by Bob Hope in The Seven Little Foys
When I was at home I was merry and frisky,
My dad kept a pig and my mother sold whisky,
My uncle was rich, but never would by aisey
Till I was enlisted by Corporal Casey.
Och! rub a dub, row de dow, Corporal Casey,
My dear little Shelah, I thought would run crazy,
When I trudged away with tough Corporal Casey.
Song lyrics to It Doesn’t Cost a Dime To Dream, Written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, Sung by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in The Lemon Drop Kid
I’ll show you how to own the moon
And how to bounce the world just like a toy balloon.
We’ll show you how to have your way
And help yourself to wishes on a silver tray.
