<lengthy instrumental intro>

 

Got my tweed pressed, got my best vest, all I need now is the girl

Got my striped tie, got my hopes high

Got the time and the place and I got the rhythm,

Now all I need's the girl to go with'em

 

If she'll just appear we'll take this big town for a whirl

And if she'll say "My, darling, I'm yours"

I'll throw away my striped tie and my best-pressed tweed

All I really need is the girl

 

<lengthy instrumental while Franks hums and scats off and on>

 

Got my tweed pressed,  I got my best vest, all I need now is the girl

Got my striped tie, got my hopes  `way up high

I got the time and the place and the rhythm

All I need's the girl to go with'em

 

Mm, if she'll just appear we'll take this, this great big town for a whirl

And if, if she'll say "My, darlin', I'm yours"

I'll throw away my striped tie and my best-pressed tweed

All I real, really need is the girl

 

< more instrumental with scat>

 

All I need is the girl
