Have you seen him on the corner,
his lip has reached the pavement,
he's been hiding from his razor,
is he not an awful sight?
In love he was the purist,
now he's frightening our tourists.
If he'd only asked his father,
Then I'm sure he'd set him right, sayin'

"Take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her,
Take her in your arms
And hold that woman tight.
Won't you take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her.
If you're going to love a woman
Then be sure and do it right."

Well, he met her at some tavern,
which was dark as any cavern,
and it all would have been different,
if he'd seen her in daylight.
She was painted, she was scented,
and she drove your man demented.
If he'd only asked his father,
Then I'm sure he'd set him right, sayin'

"Take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her,
Take her in your arms
And hold that woman tight.
Won't you take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her.
If you're going to love a woman
Then be sure and do it right."

Well, depression's not a million laughs
But suicide's too dangerous.
Don't go leapig' out of buildings
In the middle of the night.
It's not the fall but landing
That'll alter social standin'
So go first and ask your father
and I'm sure he'll set you right, sayin'

"Take her in your arms,
And tell her that you love her,
Take her in your arms,
And hold that woman tight.
Won't you take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her.
If you're going to love a woman
Then be sure and do it right."

Here's a health to all true lovers,
Their sisters and their brothers
their uncles and their grannies
for this thing is black and white
if you're keen to start romancin'
with it's leaping and it's dancin'
go first and ask your father,
and I'm sure he'll set you right, sayin'

"Take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her,
Take her in your arms
And hold that woman tight.
Won't you take her in your arms
and tell her that you love her.
If you're going to love a woman
Then be sure and do it right."

"Take her in your arms
And tell her that you love her,
Take her in your arms
And hold that woman tight.
Won't you take her in your arms
and tell her that you love her.
If you're going to love a woman
Be sure and do it right."
