#Hello, Frisco #

#Hello #

#San Francisco

Open your Golden Gate #

# You've got a stranger

waiting outside your door #

#San Francisco

Here is your wandering one #

#Saying I'll wander no more #

# Oh, for he's a jolly good fellow #

#Which nobody can deny #

- #Which nobody can deny ##

- Inside, inside! The biggest show on Pacific Street...

and the biggest glass of beer

for a nickel.

See Little Egypt,

that sensational dancer from the-

# Yip-I-Addy-I-Ay, I-Ay #

#Yip-I-Addy-I-Ay #

# I don't care what

becomes of me #

#When you play me

that sweet melody #

#Yip-I-Addy-I-Ay, I-Ay ##

# First we dated

by the Golden Gate #

#Way down in

San Francisco Bay #

# By the golden strand #

# I won her hand #

# On San Francisco

Home to Frisco #

# San Francisco Bay ##

#And her beauty was sold #

# For an old man's gold #

# She's the bird

in a gilded cage ##

- Girls! Girls!

- #Hello, hello, hello #

# Hello, my baby

Hello, my honey #

# Hello, my ragtime gal #

- # Send me a kiss by wire ##

- Stay away from those dens of iniquity!

Stay away from those dives

of corruption.

Don't swill beer

in the gutter with the hogs!

# Lindy, Lindy #

# Sweet as the sugarcane #

# Lindy, Lindy #

# Say you'll be mine #

#When the moon am a-shinin' #

#Then my heart am a-pinin' #

# Meet me, pretty Lindy

by the watermelon vine #

# Lindy, Lindy #

# Sweet as the sugarcane #

# Lindy, Lindy #

# Say you'll be mine #

Hey, Dan. If we get a hand,

we do the new act.

- You cuckoo? Sharkey wouldn't stand for it.

- I'll take care of him.

Considine's out front.

He might book us on his circuit.

#Meet me, pretty Lindy #

#By the watermelon vine #

- He wants to do the new act.

- Tell him to go fly a kite.

- That's what I'm gonna tell him.

- # Lindy #

- # Sweet as the sugarcane #

- He wants to do the new act.

#Lindy

My little Lindy #

# Say you'll be mine #

#When the moon am a-shinin' #

#Then my heart am a-pinin' #

# Meet me, pretty Lindy #

# By the watermelon vine ##

Ladies and gentlemen, in appreciation

of your generous applause...

we offer as an encore

our latest musical novelty.

Thank you. Professor, please.

I think this is the sweetest piece

of two-timing I ever saw.

You want to end up playing

in honky-tonks all your life?

Trudy, get into position, will ya?

Hey, Dan. Give me a hand

with the scenery. Come on.

# Hello, Central, Hello, Central

Can't you see #

# Kindly hurry, Kindly hurry

just for me #

# Please do get me

San Francisco #

# Someone's waiting

all alone #

# Frisco is her name

She's at the Golden Gate #

# Central, it's a shame for her

to have to wait #

# Please, long distance

do connect me #

# Get her on the telephone #

- #Hello, Frisco #

- # Hello #

#How do you, my dear

I only wish that you were here #

- # Hello #

- #Frisco #

- # Hello #

- # How is the fair out there #

- #They tell me that it is a bear #

- # Don't keep me waiting #

# It's aggravating #

# Why can't you hurry, Central

You're so slow #

- #I can hear you now #

- # I can hear you now #

# Hello

Now can you hear #

# Deary, I bought the ring

and I've arranged for everything #

#You know

I love you, dear #

#We'll be together soon

and then we'll have a honeymoon #

#Your voice is like music

to my ear #

#When I close my eyes

you seem so near #

# Frisco, I called you up

to say hello ##

# Oh, darling

I'm so blue without you #

# I think about you

the livelong day #

#When you ask me

if I'm lonely #

#Then I have only this #

#To say #

#You'll never know

just how much #

# I miss you #

#You'll never know
