I found the words but the music I do not know.

Good Luck

GEE, BUT I LIKE MUSIC WITH MY MEALS
Words by Seymour Brown and Music by Nat D. Ayer


Verse 1: There's a little restaurant on old Broadway,
Where they keep the music going night and day;
Oh, even in the morning or the afternoon,
Any time you wander in you hear a tune.
I think the man who owns it has the right idea,
He feeds the empty stomach and he pleases the ear.
The only reason that I eat there ev'ry night,
Is because the music seems to help my appetite.
Gee! that's fine! Oh strains divine!
Ev'rybody order 'cause I'm going to buy wine!

Chorus: Oh when that orchestra starts in a playing,
You can see ev'rybody present swinging and swaying,
You can hear knives and forks beating time on the dishes;
See the waiters running with the steaks and fishes,
When you hear all the boys and the girls harmonizing,
Lordy me but the swing of the tune's appetizing!
I could never explain the way that I feel!
Wait until they play another, you'll forget your home and mother.
Gee! but I like music with my meals.

Verse 2: Think I'll have some soup but first a dry cocktail!
After that I'll have a guinea hen or quail.
It's great to have the music playing while you eat!
Ever see the waiter with the musical feet?
The music seems to permeate the kitchen too!
The cook begins to dance while he is stirring the stew.
Oh, ev'rybody's just as happy as can be,
Waiter take another order, bring the check to me.
That's immense! My brain is dense!
Music makes me feel as if I've got no sense.

Chorus: Oh when that orchestra starts in a playing,
You can see ev'rybody present swinging and swaying,
You can hear knives and forks beating time on the dishes;
See the waiters running with the steaks and fishes,
When you hear all the boys and the girls harmonizing,
Lordy me but the swing of the tune's appetizing!
I could never explain the way that I feel!
Wait until they play another, you'll forget your home and mother.
Gee! but I like music with my meals.

Nancyjo - the Lester Levy Sheet Music site is the online version of the collection - if the music is visible - it's public domain!
