Canadian Capers (Bonus Doris Day Film Track from 'My Dream Is Yours') Lyrics

Canadian Capers (Bonus Doris Day Film Track from 'My Dream Is Yours') - Doris Day/Howard Keel

I heard you call for an all-star band

 

It's something new for the music stand

 

It's on the way but before we start

 

A cutting capers around your heart

 

You're gonna cheer when you hear this band

 

There's never been a better crew

 

And when you hear the drummer

Lawdy how the joint'll hum

A cutting capers just for you

 

You'll never pick about or pick a quarrel

 

With Mister Krupa or with Frankie Carle

 

You'll never dig a list of bigger names

 

A cutting capers with Harry James

 

With Benny Goodman and his clarinet

 

And Tommy Dorsey's in it too

 

Alvino Rey will star

A walking talking steel guitar

A cutting capers just for you

 

Listen to that tenor saxophone

 

Never heard it played with such a tone

 

And when you get that liquorish stick

 

Out in the woodshed son

 

Why it's Papa Benny Goodman

And he's showing ya quick

How the proper liquorish sticking done

 

Listen to that fiddle player slap slap slap

 

Boy he plays it he really lays it

In your lap lap lap

 

Say I'll bet before they're through

 

You'll be cuting capers too

(Doo doo doo doo roo doo)

 

(Do rah do)

 

Cutting capers because I'm out with you

 

Nothing else that I'm about to do

 

My heart begins to flutter like a dove

 

I even stutter (Guess it's love)

 

I'm cutting capers so you'll notice me

 

When we're together can't you see

 

I'm only blowing off

A talking big a showing off

A cutting capers because it's true

Dee dah dee dah ooh ooh ooh

Baby I'm in love (Baby I'm in love)

 

Baby I'm in love with (Baby I'm in love with)

 

Baby I'm in love with you
