Subject: Lyr Add: THEY ALL MAKE LOVE BUT ME (G Fields)

You can play or download this recording at The Internet Archive. It's song #4 on that page. Here's my transcription. There's only one phrase I couldn't understand (I think).


THEY ALL MAKE LOVE BUT ME
Words and music by Robert Hargreaves and Stanley J. Demerell, ©1931.
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1931.

All the little ducks in the duck pond,
All the little cows in the cowshed,
All the little hens in the hen roost,
Oh, they all make love but me.

All the little bees in the beehive,
All the little sheep in the sheep pen,
All the little pigs in the pigsty,
Oh, they all make love but me.

Ev'ry little chicken loves a cock-a-doodle-doo.
Ev'ry little gander makes some goose go goosey too.

All the little ducks in the pig pond,
All the little cows in the duck shed,
All the little hens in the cow roost,
Oh, they all make love but me.

Ev'rybody's loved by someone,
...(?) some, but that's all wrong,
'Cause there's no one loves me true,
No one I can make love to.
In the town each has his sweeting.
Ev'rything plays Cupid's game,
And when I reside by the countryside,
Why, it goes on just the same.

All the little ducks in the duck pond,
All the little cows in the cowshed,
All the little hens in the hen roost,
Oh, they all make love but me. (Oh, yeah?)

All the little bees in the beehive,
All the little sheep in the sheep pen,
All the little pigs in the pigsty,
Oh, they all make love but me. (Says you!)

Ev'ry little chicken loves a cock-a-doodle-doo.
Ev'ry little gander makes some goose go goosey too.

All the little ducks in the pig-duck-...-shed
All the little cows in the [mumbles incoherently]
[SPOKEN:] Oh, dear! I can't sing it! Sing it yourself!
[SUNG:] Oh, they all make love but me. [Weeps]
