  The Comb And Paper Polka

Lyrics by Hugo Hollander & Michael Feahy

THE COMB AND PAPER POLKA

 

Beneath an open window

There stood a shy ant fellow

Who played an comb and paper

To serenade his love

He couldn't play piano

The fiddle or the cello

He played a comb and paper

To serenade his love

When he played like this

Then he played once more

That's when she showed him

What her ruby lips were for

And there beneath her window

She kissed the shy ant fellow

Who played a comb and paper

To serenade his love

Then he played his tune again

And they danced the polka

To his catchy melody

Soon they stopped to spoon again

And she whispered hold me in your arms forever

So beneath the moon again

As he played his serenade the whole night through

Just as the stars were fading from the blue

She whispered darling I love you

Each night beneath her window

That not so shy ant fellow

Still plays his comb and paper

To serenade his love

He never plays piano

The fiddle or the cello

He plays his comb and paper

To serenade his love

When he plays like this

Then he play some more

That's when she showed him

What her ruby lips were for

And there beneath her window

Their arms around each other

They play and tune together

The comb and paper polka
