Subject: Lyr Add: I LOVE MOUNTAIN WOMEN (Cliff Edwards)
As sung by "Ukelele Ike" (Cliff Edwards) on "Radio & Recording Rarities, Vol. 1"

I flirted with Lou in Kalamazoo and I met Beaudette(?) in France.
I've got a sweetie in Kokomo and one does a hula dance.
I've played with the girls along Broadway and the babes in Hollywood,
But the place to be is Tennessee if you want to find something good.

Oh, I love mountain women; they do so much to me.
I love those moonshine honeys down in Tennessee.
The girlies here are very fine and really know their stuff,
And how they love their mountain men; they just can't get enough.
They raise my aspirations and tickle my fancy too.
I came for a vacation and it's more than I can do.
Now a mountain gal in a pile of hay
Is worth two broads in a cabaret.
I love mountain women 'cause they do so much to me.

I love mountain women; they have such sex appeal.
You really can't imagine the way they make me feel.
They came in the morning and they steal my ammunition.
Although I like their overtures, I need an intermission.
If I were in a harem, I'd get a lot more rest,
But I'm a mountain sultan who gives service by request.
I've asked the ladies all to wait
And just let me recuperate.
I love mountain women 'cause they do so much to me.

I love mountain women; they're clever, can't you see?
They ain't so much on science but they know their anatomy.
Each morning fair they take my staff and then we start to climb.
And when we reach the summit, oh, boy, it's really fine.
They tell me that their mountain is the best thing they adore.
I'm getting' so that I can't climb their mountain any more.
Now the girlies here they sure get rude,
Fightin' for my altitude.
I love mountain women 'cause they do so much to me.
