Am looking for this for a project i am working on. Grandma's memoirs are on my desk, and am typing them up clean, with footnotes. Well, i want this as a footnote. Popular around the 40's. Any clues, out there? Thanks!

I'll try one more time. Anyone out there? Couldn't be too obscure of a tune, could it? Thanks, all

Subject: Lyr Add: NEVER BEEN KISSED (Coben/Grean)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 21 Jan 12 - 03:22 PM

I suspect this is the song that was wanted. Not quite 1940s though.


NEVER BEEN KISSED
Written by Cy Coben and Charles Grean, ©1951
As sung by Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire on "Bing Crosby and His Hollywood Guests" (1997)

1. Oh, I know a gal who's a treat to the eye.
The boys always whistle when she passes by.
She's out ev'ry night; not a night has she missed,
And her mother says that she's never been kissed.

CHORUS: (What?)* Never been kissed, never been kissed,
It's hard to believe that she's never been kissed.

2. One night she went out for a row on the lake.
The guy she was with dropped the oars by mistake.
They drifted for hours before they were missed,
But still she insists that she's never been kissed. CHORUS

3. A wealthy young man took a liking to her.
He gave her some presents of jew'lry and fur,
Including a diamond as big as your fist,
Yet she'll take an oath that she's never been kissed. CHORUS

4. Now there's a new book they're all talking about
Called "Lessons in Love;" you have read it, no doubt.
I hear that it just made the best-seller list.
Well, it's written by her and she's never been kissed. CHORUS

5. She married the best catch in town, by the way,
And said to the girls as she threw her bouquet:
"Just keep the boys guessing and always insist
That you are a girl who has never been kissed."

6. The end of this story is sad and here's why:
I saw her today with a tear in her eye.
I asked her the reason why she was so blue,
And the answer she gave me we'll pass on to you:

LAST CHORUS: Never been kissed, never been kissed,
She married a man who has never been kissed. (What?)*


* This is a live performance, and the word "What?" is shouted by a large group of people, including, I suppose, the audience.

A German version of this song called SIE HAT NOCH NIE (NEVER BEEN KISSED) was sung by Rudi Carrell.

There are other songs with the same title.
