Elmer’s Tune

1941 – Elmer Albrecht / Dick Jurgens / Sammy Gallop

Why are the stars always winkin’ and blinkin’ above?
What makes a fellow start thinkin’ of fallin’ in love?
It’s not the season, the reason is plain as the moon
It’s just Elmer’s tune

What makes a lady of eighty go out on the loose?
Why does a gander meander in search of a goose?
What puts the kick in a chicken, the magic in June?
It’s just Elmer’s tune

Listen, listen, there’s a lot you’re li’ble to be missin’
Sing it, swing it, any old way and any old time
The hurdy gurdies, the birdies, the cop on the beat
The candy maker, the baker, the man on the street
The city charmer, the farmer, the man in the moon
All sing Elmer’s tune
