Subject: 'I Love Me'

1942 is a long way back, but I was ten years old then and in an orphanage. There was an old wind-up record player in the basement with just one record which I think was titled "I Love Me". I would really like to find the words to this humerous song and would appreciate any help. Some words I remember went like this: "I love me, I love me, I love myself to death I love me, I love me, 'til I'm all out of breath" I think the song was an English one as I remember the accent of the singer. Many thanks for your help. Ron Thomas, Brisbane Australia.

Thank you so much Pene Azul.

That is a slightly different version, but the tune is the same. I remember there was a bit about looking in the mirror to "comb my hair". Regards, Ron

Thanks for the memory! This was one of the songs my late husband sang. He had a barrel of funny songs, and I wish I could remember them all!

Lyrics copied from http://www.coolcatdaddy.com/gt-supp-iloveme.htm
There are also a couple of sound samples at that page.

I LOVE ME
Performed by Vaudeville Comedian Billy Murray (Victor 19066-B)

When people write their songs of love they write of one another   
It's always Sis or Ma and Pa, a sweetheart or a brother   
But love songs that they've aimed at me have all gone on the shelf   
I don't think that is fair, so I'll write one of myself.   
I love me, I love me, I love myself to death   
I love me, I love me, 'till I'm all out of breath   
I stop at every slot machine that I should chance to pass   
And give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass   

Oh, I love me, I love me, I'm wild about sweet me   
I love me, only me, so I'm content you see   
With me I like to make a date   
To meet myself at half past eight   
If I'm not there, I never wait   
I'm wild about myself   

I love me, I love me, every place I go   
I love me, I love me, and at a movie show   
I take myself right by the arm and push me through the crowd   
And listen to myself read me the titles right out loud   

Oh, I love me, I love me, I love to squeeze my hand   
I love me, I love me, it always feels so grand   
With me I get right in my tub   
I let myself give me a rub   
Oh, how I love to feel me scrub   
I'm wild about myself.   

I love me, I love me, I'm wild about myself   
I love me, I love me, my picture's on my shelf   
You may think I look so good but me thinks I'm just fine   
It's grand when I look in my eyes and know they're mine all mine   

I love me, I love me, and my love doesn't bore   
Day by day in every way, I love me more and more   
I take me to a quiet place   
I put my arm around my waist   
If me gets fresh, I slap my face (Oh! Ma!)   
I'm wild about myself

From the sheet music at The National Library of Australia:

I LOVE ME (I'M WILD ABOUT MYSELF)
Words and music by Will Mahoney.
[Sydney]: D. Davis & Co., 1923.
New York: Broadway Music Corp., 1923.

VERSE 1. When people write their songs of love, they write of one another.
It's always Sis or Ma and Pa, a sweetheart, or a brother;
But love songs that they've aimed at me have all gone on the shelf.
I don't think that is fair, so I'll write one of myself.

CHORUS 1: I love me. I love me. I love myself to death.
I love me. I love me, 'til I'm all out of breath.
I stop at ev'ry slot machine that I should chance to pass
And give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass.
(Oh) I love me. I love me. I'm wild about sweet me.
I love me, only me, so I'm content, you see.
I like myself with such delight,
I take me right straight home each night
And sleep with me 'til broad daylight.
I'm wild about myself.

VERSE 2. I know a girl who has the boys proposing by the dozen.
Among her list are rich and poor and even one lone cousin;
But when she talks of love to me, I treat her with disdain.
I loudly shout there's someone else, and then this wild refrain:

CHORUS 2: I love me. I love me, every place I go.
I love me. I love me, and at a movie show,
I take myself right by the arm and push me through the crowd,
And listen to myself read me the titles right out loud.
(Oh) I love me. I love me. I love to squeeze my hand.
I love me. I love me. It always feels so grand!
With me I get right in my tub.
I let myself give me a rub.
Oh, how I love to feel me scrub!
I'm wild about myself.

CHORUS 3: I love me. I love me. I'm wild about myself.
I love me. I love me. My picture's on my shelf.
You may not think I look so good, but me thinks I'm just fine.
It's grand when I look in my eyes and know that I'm all mine.
(Oh) I love me. I love me, and my love doesn't bore.
Day by day, in ev'ry way, I love me more and more.
I take me to a quiet place.
I put my arm around my waist.
If me gets fresh, I slap my face.
I'm wild about myself.

Gawd, I was only thinking earlier today that this song reminds me of my first husband....

This is my transcription. I have boldfaced the words that are not in the sheet music (see above). The remainder of the words are shifted around a bit, and of course, the verses are omitted.


I LOVE ME (I'M WILD ABOUT MYSELF)
As sung by Mel Blanc on "Greatest Hits"

I love me. I love me. I'm wild about myself.
I love me. I love me. My picture's on my shelf.
You may not think I look so good, but me thinks I'm just fine.
It's grand when I look in my eyes and know that I'm all mine.
I love me. I love me, and my love doesn't bore.
Day by day, in ev'ry way, I love me more and more.
Myself and me we have a fight
And I can't fall asleep at night,
Till I kiss me, then I'm all right.

I'm wild about myself.

I love me. I love me. I love myself to death.
I love me. I love me, 'til I'm all out of breath.
I stop at ev'ry looking-glass that I should chance to pass,
And give myself a hug and squeeze as I look in the glass.
I love me. I love me. I'm wild about sweet me.
I love me, only me, so I'm content, you see.
With me I get right in my tub.
I let myself give me a rub.
Oh, how I love to feel me scrub!
I'm wild about myself.

I think I'm just a dream.

Me thinks I'm plenty keen.

Ooh, I'm such a doll!

For me I'm all afire.

I am my one desire.


I love me. I love me. I think me is a prize.
I love me. I love me, 'cause me is just my size.
I take me in my parlor and I sit on my settee,
And then I lift myself right up and bounce me on my knee.

I love me. I love me. I never leave my sight.
I love me. I love me. I'm with me day and night.
I take me to a quiet place.
I put my arms around my waist.
If me gets fresh, I slap my face.
I'm wild about myself.

Ooh-o0h-ooh-ooh! I tickle me!
