Could'ya, for an ice cream sundae?  Could'ya, for a smile or two?

Would'ya, say along about next Monday, keep a guy from feeling blue?

Could'ya, for big red apple?  Could'ya, for a tootsie roll?

Would'ya, for some Philadelphia truffle, brighten up some lonely soul?

I don't wanna have the stars in the pocket, or ride a rocket to the moon.

I just want what I want when I see what I want, and I hope I get it soon.

Could'ya, for a peaceful valley?  Could'ya, for the Zuyder Zee?

Would'ya for a honeymoon in Bali?  Could'ya fall in love with me?

Baby, could'ya, would'ya take a chance on romance,

Couldya, for a ripe tomato?  Could'ya, for a place that's in?

Would'ya, for a bowl of sweet potato?  Could'ya, for a leopard skin?

Could'ya, for a bright red tulip?  Could'ya, for a ferris wheel?

Would'ya for Kentucky plate of juleps?  Could'ya, for a home cooked meal?

I don't wanna have the stars in the pocket, or ride a rocket to the moon.

I just want what I want when I see what I want, hope I get it soon.

Could'ya, for a peaceful valley?  Could'ya, for the Zuyder Zee?

Would'ya, for a honeymoon in Bali? Would'ya, should'ya, could'ya fall in love with me?
