The girl that I marry will have to be

As soft and as pink as a nursery

The girl I call my own

Will wear satins and laces and smell of cologne

 

Her nails will be polished and, in her hair,

She'll wear a gardenia and I'll be there

`stead of flittin', I'll be sittin'

Next to her and she'll purr like a kitten

 

A doll I can carry, the girl that I marry must be
