You are? Are you sure

you can afford it?

I do hope I haven't

made it too strong.

Why, Michael,

how can you say that?

Whatever touches

those lips turns to honey.

Aren't they divine?

They're positively sinful.

Sinful is right. They're

positively a crime against nature.

Here's your baby, nursemaid.

She's cryin' for ya.

Oh, hello, Droopy.

She probably wants her

whiskers combed. Sing to her.

Come on, Steve.

Sing something.

Oh, no, not me. You know

how funny she is about music.

Oh, come on! That's all

right. I'll hold her for ya.


I'll sing about

the birds and bees

The pretty flowers

and the trees

The moon, the sun

the summery breeze


I'll even go to town

With ''London Bridge

Is Falling Down''

But I positively

refuse to sing

Don't know why

There's no sun

up in the sky

Stormy weather

Since my gal and I

ain't together

['ll sing about

the night we met

And about to remember

or forget

The grass is green

The dew is wet and say

I'll yodel

Night and day

''On the Road to Mandalay''

But I positively

refuse to sing

Who's Afraid of

the Big Bad Wolf-a

''When Annie Doesn't

Live Here Anymore''

I'll take

a heartbreak

I'll even end my song with

a ''hey-hey'' or a ''Yeah, man''

I'll sing about

the cabin door

The fields of corn

The Swanee shore

Let it rain

Let it pour

What's more

A cottage

warm and cozy

Or a


But I positively

refuse to sing

''['m Headin'for

That Last Roundup''

Get along, little doggie

Get along

Good night

lovely little lady

I must say adieu

To you

And your loveliness

The owner wants to see

you on the upper deck.

Who, me?

At once.

Evening, ma'am.

Good evening.

When I chose you

to take care of Droopy,

I did so because I believed you were

a steady and trustworthy young man.
