Benny: Nathan, I cannot believe that a number one businessman like you
Has fallen in love with his own fiance
Nathan: All right, so Adelaide is my weakness, can’t you be tolerant that I should have a weakness?
Because this weakness is a sad condition that affects guys all over the world
Look, what’s playing at the Roxy?
I’ll tell you what’s playing in the Roxy
A picture about a Minnesota man so in love with a Mississippi girl
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Malacksy
That’s what’s playing at the Roxy
Benny: What’s in the daily news? I’ll tell what’s in the daily news
Story about a guy who bought his wife a small ruby
With what otherwise would have been his union dues
That’s what’s on the daily news
Nicely: What’s happening all over? I’ll tell you what is happening all over
Guys sitting home before the television set who used to be something of a rover
That is what’s happening all over
All: What is the thing that has licked 'em?
Nathan: And it looks like I am just another victim

Yes sir, when you see a guy reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he’s doing it for some doll
When you spot a john waiting out in the rain
Chances are he’s insane, as only a john can be for a jane
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal
Call it bad, call it funny, but it’s better than even money
That’s the guy that’s only doing it for some doll
When you see a Joe, saving half of his dough
You can bet they’ll be minting it for some doll
When a bum buys wine like a bum can’t afford
It’s a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad
When you meet a mug lately out of the jug
And he’s still lifting platinum for the roll
Call its hell, call it heaven, it’s a probable twelve to seven
That’s a guy that’s only doing it for some doll
(Musical interlude)
When you see a sport and his cash has run short
You can bet that he’s been blowing it on some doll
When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
Who the heck do you think he’s tickling pink on a Saturday night
When the lazy slob gets a good steady job
And he smells from Vitalis and Barbasol
Call it dumb, call it clever, ah but you keep on forever
That’s a guy that’s only doing it for some doll, some doll, some doll
That’s a guy that’s only doing it for some doll
