#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

just how much #

# I care #

#And if I tried

I still couldn't hide #

# My love for you #

#You ought to know #

# For haven't I told you so #

#A million or more times #

#You went away #

#And my heart

went with you #

# I speak your name #

# In my every breath #

# If there is some other way #

#To prove that I love you #

# I swear I don't know how #

#You'll never know #

# If you don't know #

# Now #

# If there is some other way #

#To prove that I love you #

# I swear I don't know how #

#You'll never know #

# If you don't know #

# Now ##

Come on! Come on!

Get back to your jobs!

What do you think I'm paying you for, to work

here or enjoy yourself? Get at that bar!

You three come with me.

Trudy, honey, you were wonderful.

Listen to 'em yell.

- Come on! Let's go out for another bow.

- Wait a minute, you pinheads.

- What do you think you're doing?

- We're just trying something different, Mr. Sharkey.

Oh, you were? Well, you pulled

a hundred people away from my bar.

- It's empty out there.

- Well, it just shows ya.

You bet it does! If it happens six times a night,

I'm out of business. Get out. You're fired!

- Now wait-

- Come on, Johnny. Don't argue.

All right. If that's all the appreciation

you've got of what your customers want...

- it's jake with me.

- Get out, or I'll have you thrown out!

- We've been thrown out of and back into better joints!

- Go on, throw 'em out!

Sharkey did us a favor.

We're through working

in honky-tonks.

Something'll turn up.

- And stay out!

- Johnny!

Johnny, I was looking for you while you was

acting over at Sharkey's, but I couldn't wait.

- My boy, you was great!

- You all know Sam Weaver.

Know him? I've been bitten

by him. How are ya? Scat!

Johnny, I got news for ya.

Great news, Johnny!
