Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Couple of Swells (Irving Berlin)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Couple of Swells?
We're a couple of swells,we dine at the best hotels;
We like to roam the country far away from the city smells
We're a couple of sports, we shine on the tennis courts
In June, July and August we look cute when we're dressed in shorts
Wall street bankers are we, with plenty of currency,
We'd open up the safe but we forgot where we put the key.
We could sail down the Avenue but we haven't got a yacht
We could ride down the Avenue, but the horse we had was shot.
We could swim down the Avenue, but we haven't got a lake,
So a walk down the Avenue, yes a walk down the Avenue, yes a walk down the Avenue's what we'll take.
This is not complete, and may not be in correct sequence, but it's the best I can do from memory.
