If you got something inside,

you should let it come out.

So I want to announce right now...

...if anyone comes near

Babe Doolittle, I'll kill him!

- Wow! You tell 'em, Beef.

- That's love.

- Bobby, hurry up.

- Have you met the new bombshell yet?

The Phi Gamma Gamma,

Patricia McClellan.

She's burning up the campus.

Haven't you seen her?

- I let the gals come to see me.

- Tommy, how do you do it?

It's a cinch and it's a snap

They just fall in your lap

And, Bobby, you can make them

Do the same

Who, me? Never.

Don't be scared, don't be shy

Get that gleam in your eye

And then you'll have more girls

Than you can name

Wear collegiate, collegiate clothes

- Be a ladies' man

- I just look silly.

Get that swagger and get that pose

- Be a ladies' man

- I couldn't.

If you think you're much too skinny

With your six-inch waist

Don't just give up the fight in haste

Some girls have such peculiar taste

Be a ladies'

Be a ladies'

Learn to be a ladies' man

- And be collegiate

- Collegiate

- Collegiate

- Collegiate.

Walk collegiate, talk collegiate

- Be a ladies' man

- A rooty tooty

Get that swagger, get that pose

- Be a ladies' man

- A rooty toot

And when a ladies' man

Wears a certain tie

And that twinkle is in his eye

You can kiss your sweetie-pie goodbye

They love a ladies' man

- Oh, how I love the ladies

- Root toot-toot, rooty toot-toot-toot

Get that gleam, boy

Right in your eye

- I wanna be a ladies' man

- A rooty tooty

Root toot-tooty, toot-toot-toot-toot

Be a ladies' man

A rooty tooty

When they give you that frozen stare

Make believe that you just don't care

Then in no time they're in your hair

If you're a ladies' man

If you're a ladies' man

If you're a ladies' man

You gotta be up-to-date

You gotta know your stuff

Betty Comden

Betty Comden (born Basya Cohen, May 3, 1917 – November 23, 2006) was one-half of the musical-comedy duo Comden and Green, who provided lyrics, libretti, and screenplays to some of the most beloved and successful Hollywood musicals and Broadway shows of the mid-20th century. Her writing partnership with Adolph Green, called "the longest running creative partnership in theatre history", lasted for six decades, during which time they collaborated with other leading entertainment figures such as the famed "Freed Unit" at MGM, Jule Styne and Leonard Bernstein, and wrote the musical comedy film Singin' in the Rain. more…
