Got my tweed pressed
Got my best vest

All I need now is the girl
Got my striped tie
Got my hopes high
Oh, I've got the time and the place and the rhythm
All I need's the girl to go with 'em
If she'll just appear
We'll take this big town for a whirl
And if she'll say
"My darling, I'm yours," I'll throw away
My striped tie and my best pressed tweed
All I really need is the girl

[ Talking:
'Look out now.
You all didn't know I could do that, did you?
You still don't know I can do that, do you?' ]

[ Harry is tap dancing ]

Oh, I've got the time and the place and the rhythm
All I need's the girl to go with 'em
If she'll just appear
We'll.. ..we'll take this big town for a whirl
And if she'll say
"Oh Harry, I love ya,"
Then I'll throw away my striped tie
I'll throw away my best pressed tweed

[ Talking:
'It's a very aqward moment here in the theatre right now.
You don't know exactly how to act or what to think.
And I'm in control.

A spattering of applause makes the people yet more uncomfortable.' ]

Oh I really need (Oh I really need)
Oh I really need (Oh I really need)
All I really need (All I really need)
All I really need (All I really need)
Oh I really need (Oh I really need)

Hey hey hey hey hey (Hey hey hey hey hey)
Oh oh oh oh oh (Oh oh oh oh oh)
I i i i i (I i i i i)

Ai ai ai ai ai (Ai ai ai ai ai)
Ai ai ai ai ai [low] (Ai ai ai ai ai)
Ai ai ai ai ai [very low]

Ai ai ai ai ai [high] (Ai ai ai ai ai)
Ai ai ai ai ai [very high] (Ai ai ai ai ai)

Hagali hagali how (Hagali hagali how)
Buggeli buggeli boo (Buggeli buggeli boo)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

All I really need is the
[ Tap dancing ]
Girl
