These digital collections have been created from historical documents that reflect the sensibilities of creators in historical times and may contain opinions, language, images, or other content that modern readers may find offensive. The Lear Center and Connecticut College do not endorse the attitudes expressed therein. The Lear Center presents these documents as part of the historical record and recognizes the imperative not to alter it.

[Verse 1]
There’s a girl
I’m wild about
Ev’ry time I take her out
I hug her
I squeeze her
I tease her so
And we always can be found
Where there’s no one else around
Do we cuddle?
Do we pet?
You ain’t heard nothin’ yet.

[Verse 2]
Ev’rytime she’s alone
When i call her on the phone
I hurry
I scurry
I worry so
I’m afraid that I might see
Someone there in place of me
If I lost her
What blow
I love her Oh! Oh! Oh!

I love her in the morning
And I love her at night
I love her, yes I love her
When the stars are shinning bright
I love her in the springtime and I love her in the fall,
But last night on the back porch I loved her best of all. I all
The first time that I met her
It was true love at first sight in the parlor taxi.
