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 start's 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, Oooh if you take me home

You'd be surprised

I'm sorry that im 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

Whoop's! (Flashes Skirt)

You'd be surprised

Big Boss:

You're hired!

Betty Boop:

Whoopee!
