DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: MY DARLING, MY DARLING (Frank Loesser)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 07 Sep 10 - 02:03 PM

YouTube has a recording of this song by Doris Day & Buddy Clark, and several others, by Gracie Fields, Johnny Mathis, Jo Stafford & Gordon MacRae, Joni James, and Jaye P. Morgan.

Words and music by Frank Loesser
New York: Susan Publications, Inc., 1948.

Till a moment ago we were "Mister" and "Miss,"
Discussing the weather, avoiding each other's eye,
Till a moment ago when we happened to kiss,
And we kissed the "Mister" and "Miss" goodbye.
Now at last I can sigh —

My darling, my darling,
I've wanted to call you my darling
For many and many a day.
My darling, my darling,
I fluttered and fled like a starling.
My courage just melted away.

Now all at once you've kissed me,
And there's not a thing I'm sane enough to say,
Except my darling, my darling,
Get used to the name of my darling.
It's here to stay.

[Sung by Ray Bolger in "Where's Charley?" Also recorded by Brook Benton, Johnny Mathis, Sarah Vaughan, and several others.]

And now, the parody:

This version can be heard at WFMU's Beware of the Blog (or click to play).

As sung by Homer & Jethro.

My darlin', my darlin',
I've wanted to call you my darlin'
For many and many a year.
I've called you such sweet names
Like fathead and meathead and birdbrain,
And some things that I can't say here.

Let me call you sweetheart,
'Cause I've called you ever' name that's in the book
Except my darlin', my darlin'.
Oh, how can I call you my darlin' the way you look?

My darling, by golly,
To me you don't look very jolly.
You look melancholy somehow.
Your head's like a melon.
Your face it resembles a collie.
When you eat, you chew like a cow.

I would like to kiss you,
But your upper lip is always in the way.
You're like income tax, dear,
So I guess that I can relax, dear.
You're here to stay.
Ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo! Oh, Lawd!

[From "Homer & Jethro Fracture Frank Loesser" 1953.]
