Thread Name: Lyr Add: Songs by Ukulele Ike (Cliff Edwards)
Subject: Lyr Add: COME UP AND SEE ME SOMETIME (C Edwards)
As sung by Cliff Edwards, a.k.a. Ukelele Ike, on "Naughty Tracks of the Early Blues, Vol. 2"

I believe that ev'ryone in life should have a mission.
Making people happy is the height of my ambition.
When I get them happy, well, they stay in that condition.
I have a system all my own.

I've got a lot, a lot of what I've got,
And what I've got's all mine.
And I assure you, I can cure you, if you're feeling blue.
Come up and see me sometime.

I've got a flat where you can hang your hat,
And I've got a brand-new line,
And maybe you would like me to explain it all to you.
Come up and see me sometime.

Come up tonight.
I think the paper said the moon will be bright.
They should have had it in the columns and all,
Letters that tall,
That you'd be falling for me,

'Cause I am free and you appeal to me,
But how could it be a crime?
If you don't get my number, well, my number's in the book.
Come up and see me sometime.
