LadyJean, we have found the song I sought; but just in case someone should look here, I will post the lyrics to the song you mentioned. It and another version of it can be found here.


Transcribed from vocals by Helen Kane, recorded 7/16/1928,
From Helen Kane, the Original 'Boop-Boop a-Doop' Girl: Great Original Performances 1928 - 1930; Robert Parker's Classic Years in Digital Stereo, Louisiana Red Hot Records, RPCD-323,

Love, love, love, love,
Look what you've done to me!
The things I never missed,
Are things I can't resist!

Oh, love, love, love, love,
Isn't it plain to see,
I just had a change of heart,
What can it be?

He's got eyes of blue,
I never cared for eyes of blue,
But he's got eyes of blue,
And that's my weakness now!

He's got curly hair,
I never cared for curly hair,
But he's got curly hair,
And that's my weakness now!

Oh, my! Oh, me!
Oh, I should be good, I would be good,
But, gee!

He likes to bill and coo,
And I never cared to bill and coo,
But he likes to bill and coo,
So that's my weakness now!

He likes a saxophone,
I never cared for a saxophone,
But he likes a saxophone,
And that's my weakness now!

He likes those rainy days,
And I never cared for a rainy day,
But he likes a rainy day,
And that's my weakness now!

Oh, let it rain, let it pour,
'Cause I think he knows just what it's rainin' for!

He likes a long good-night,
And I never had a long good-night,
But he likes a long good-night,
So that's my weakness now!

And he likes boop-boop-a-doop,
And I never cared for boop-boop-a-doop
But he likes a boop-boop-a-doop,
So, that's my weakness now!

And he likes butt'n dutt'n da-da-da,
I never cared for butt'n dutt'n da-da-da,
But he likes but-dut-da-da,
So, that's my weakness now!

What's more, what's more,
Oh, I think he knows what but-dut-da is for!

And he likes boop-boop-a-doop,
I never cared for a boop-boop-a-doop
But he likes to boop-boop-a-doop,
That's my weakness now!

Ooh, that's my weakness now!
