Lyrics:

He's not so good in a crowd but when you get him alone,

You'd be surprised!

He isn't much at a dance,

But then when he takes you home,

You'd be surprised!

He doesn't look like much of a lover,

But don't judge a book by it's cover,

He's got the face the angel,

But...

There's the devil in his eye.

He's such a delicate thing,

But when he starts into squeeze,

You'd be surprised.

He doesn't look very strong,

But when you sit on his knee,

Whoo, whoo!

You'd be surprised!

At a party,

Or at a ball,

I've got to admit,

He's nothing at all.

But in a morris chair,

You'd be surprised!

He's not so good in the house,

But on a bench in a park,

You'd be surprised!

He isn't much in the light,

But when he gets in the dark,

Oh, You'd be surprised!

I know he looks as slow as the yeary,

But you don't know the half of it deary.

He looks as cold as a eskimo,

But there's a fire in his eye.

He doesn't say much but when he starts into squeeze,

You'd be surprised!

He's not so good at the start but at the end of the week,

Whoo, whoo!

You'd be surprised!

On a street car or in a train,

You'd think he was born without any brain.

But in a taxi cab,

You'd be surprised!

Lyrics:

Betty Boop:

Well I'm not so good in a crowd but when you get me alone,

You'd be surprised!

I dont know how to type right,

But, Ooh if you take me home.

You'd be surprised!

I'm sorry that I'm not a very good worker but dont judge a book by it's cover.

I've got the face of an angel but im the devil in disguise!

You'd be surprised!

I didnt go to a school but when I sit on your knee,

You'd be surprised!

For someone to answer your calls,

I've got to admit that I'm nothing at all but in a morris chair,

Whoops! You'd be surprised!

Big Boss:

You're hired!

Betty Boop:

Whoopee!
