THE FRECKLE SONG

I've got a girl that I'm just simply wild about -
Folks say I'm a lucky boy.
Everywhere we go people rave about
This little bundle of joy



She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise.
She smells like a rose
From her head down to her toes.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice

She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise.
All the sailors give her a chase
Cos they love her naval base.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice

She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise.
She's like my Nelly
From her head down to her elbow.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice.

She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise,
With old men she loves to neck,
She wrecks their necks and gets a cheque.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice.

She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise.
She was born in Hackensack
She made a fortune on her careers.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice.

She's got freckles on her, but she is nice,
And when she's in my arms it's Paradise.
She drinks till she gets plastered,
She gets drunker than my brother.
She's got freckles on her, but she is nice.

Thanks Mick. I did a lot of googling but couldn't find anything. A neat old tune.

Mick, thanks so much. I had a friend in college who used to sing the title line quite often, but never more than that. I heard no more of it until following your link to the Larry Vincent clip. Call me obtuse, but the straight reading of that line never occurred to me before. What's the emoticon for {lightbulb flickers on}?

Maybe: O~ :-o

What fun! I wish I knew if my parents knew it. We've got a lot of freckles in our family. Thanks for the mp3, etc.!

Artful - I debated (with myself) about the first line (for a few seconds), but decided that any other possible readings/spellings and locations of commas must be in the ear of the listener!

Correction, verse 4 (not counting the intro), line 4:

"She necks the wrecks and gets a cheque." [or "check"]

Has anyone got the chords for this old song 'Freckles' in G or C ?

I would change it to, "She's got freckles on her and she's nice."
The word "but|" indicates that freckles are a negative quality.

PHJim: "The word "but" indicates that freckles are a negative quality."

Exactly where did you think the girl was freckled Jim?

About 42 years ago I borrowed a 1926 (or 36?) "platter" of this by the Airline Trio and recorded it on cassette. About 20 years after that, I was working with an exceptionally freckly woman, and happened to remember the song. I gave her a copy and told her "listen to this, it's a prophecy about you from 1926 ". However, I never surveyed the total possible coverage of the lady's freckles.
