Betty lyrics

Betty

TENNESSEE:
Jus look at that ? could you put her away and sleep? Not me ? I can tell she's ready for some Tennessee lovin':

Darling Betty, you look soft as can be
Helpless as a calico kitten caught in a tree
I'm breathless, I'm sighin'
There's no denying
I enjoy what I see ? lucky me!

MITCH:
Darling Bettyh, maybe you'll understand

BOTH:
We're as lost and lonely as sailors
Six months from land

MITCH:
And restless as that little lamb
When Mary's outta sight
I need someone to hold tonight

ALL:
Betty, Betty
Months, years I'll be without it
'Cept for you on demand

TENNESSEE:
...And my hand!
How'm I s'posed to sleep tonight
Surrounded by guys?

CZECHOWSKI:
Darlin' Betty
If you only were here
I would kiss you ?

MITCH:
Hold you ?

TENNESSEE:
And whisper
Soft in your ear

CZECHOWSKI/MITCH/TENNESSEE:
And all the sweet forbidden things
The army don't allow
I'd try on you tonight
Hold you good and tight
This sleeping car would be all right
If you were here with me tonight

TENNESSEE:
Give my back my Betty!

MITCH:
Stu's turn.

CZECHOWSKI:
You got a girl, Stu?

TENNESSEE:
Maybe Stubie's a v-i-r-g-i-n-n.

CZECHOWSKI:
Gimme another picture, this one's sticky.

TENNESSEE:
I got some extra Betties
You want front or back?

CZECHOWSKI:
Back!

MITCH:
Front!

TENNESSEE:
Two Lana Turners, if she's more your style
Veronica Lake's peek-a-boo smile
You can take 'em all
And I don't need 'em back
As long as there's Betty
Right here in the sack

CZECHOWSKI:
I'll take the Rita Hayworth
Hear she's Mexican!
Rita's too good for Orson Welles!
Hey wouldja fuck Deanna Durbin?
I'll take 'em both
Plus Lena Horne!
Give me until morn!

TENNESSEE:
Not my
Gorgeous Rita!
Well there's Deanna Durbin
If you like 'em young
I like 'em young!
Ladies give me one kiss

MITCH:
Hear she's a seƱorita!
Gorgeous!
Got any singers?
Judy Garland's mine!
They're all of them pretty
The whole damn pile
Wish there was one here to cuddle...

How 'bout you, sweetheart?
You've been awful glum
Don't none of these pin-ups
Speak to you, chum?

STU:
Darling Betty
Do your magic on me
Make your hips
Your kissable lips
Exciting to see
And all the good and normal things
That other fellas do
You'll make me wanna do

Betty. I like Betty.

MITCH:
Betty's got her hooks in him too!

TENNESSEE:
Woo hoo!

STU:
Darlin' Betty,
You look soft as can be
Lying like a calico kitten
Caught in a tree
And restless
As that little lamb
When Mary's out of sight
I need someone to hold tonight

MITCH:
Now you've chosen one
A kitten caught in atree
So far from sight
Need you tonight

TENNESSEE:
Body is achin'
I need you
Your lops heavenly
Squeeze you tight

CZECHOWSKI:
Can you feel me near
Give me just a moment alone
But don't tell Ethel

ALL:
Steady! Steady!
For I'm liable to burst
Your ass so rosy and round
And renowned!

TENNESSEE:
Now Betty Davis is fine for your Pa!

CZECHOWSKI:
And Betty Crocker is fine for your Ma!

STU:
And Betty Hutton is cute as a button!

ALL:
But as for me, give me Grable!
She's the Betty of mine!
How I wish here body was here
Wich which to entwine

CZECHOWSKI:
A piston needs a place to pump!

TENNESSEE:
A rooster needs a hen!

ALL:
But here there's only men
Men and men again
So dreams'll have to hold me tight
Tonight! Tonight! Tonight!

TENNESSEE:
Goodnight.

CZECHOWSKI:
Goodnight.

MITCH:
Goodnight.

STU:
Goodnight.
