Lyrics

VERSE 1
I kept company with a pearl used to call her my dear girl
Spent my money on her you see
And I thought she’d marry me.
When I lost my job one day
She said, “Goodbye, on your way”
Now she’s got another beau
A pal of mine with lots of dough!

CHORUS
Somebody else is gettin’ it, gettin’ it,
Right where his collar ought to be,
Somebody else is gettin’ it, gettin’ it,
Right where the chicken got the A X E,
Somebody else thinks he’s in fine,
But he’ll get his where I got mine
Somebody else is gettin’ it, gettin’ it,
Right where she handed it to me.

VERSE 2
I was awfully good to her when I drew my fifteen per
Ev’ry saturday night we’d go
To a café concert show.
She’d say “I like Lobster, Gee!”
Then she’d smile and look at me
Where she is now I don’t care
But one thing tickles me for fair!

CHORUS
