A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody

Melody - Irvin Berlin, 1919; Seq. by Don Ferguson

Irvin Berlin, 1919

I have an ear for music, and I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pretty girlie, with each pretty tune that's played.
They go together, like sunny weather goes with the month of May.
I've studied girsl and music, so I'm qualified to say.
A pretty girl is like a melody that haunts you night and day,
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start upon a marathon and run around your brain.
You can't escape she's in your memory. By morning, night and noon.
She will leave you and then come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune.
