Gotcha!
[Bill]
Dat's how I earn my weekly check
With a rainbow 'round my shoulder
And a girder 'round my neck!
[Both]
Hear the happy riveters!
[Bill]
A girl can love a sailor
A butcher or a tailor,
But nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
A girl can love a plumber
Or some guy even dumber
But nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
She'd love a crook
Who'd break into the jewelry shop;
If she's a cook,
She'd even love a cop.
But when we start to rivet
No woman can outlive it,
So nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
A girl can love an actor
A lawyer or a contractor
But nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
A girl can love a painter
Whose paint makes her fainter,
But nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
King Salomon! Ten thousand wives all paid his rent
And each one paid one-tenth of one percent
But when we start to rivet
No deaf girl would forgive it,
So nobody loves a riveter but his mother!
