Come Blow Your Horn

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen

Make like a Mister Milquetoast – and you’ll get shutout
Make like a Mister Meek – and you’ll get cut out
Make like a little lamb – and wham you’re shorn
I tell you chum – it’s time to come – blow your horn
Make like a Mister Mumbles – and you’re a zero
Make like a Mister Big – they dig a hero
You’ve got to sound your “A” – the day you’re born
I tell you chum – it’s time to come – blow your horn
The taller the tree is – the sweeter the peach
I’ll give you the whole magilla – in a one word speech – reach
Make like the world’s your pudding – but light the brandy
Even the mildest kiss – is a dan-dan-dandy
There’ll be no love in bloom – come doomsday morn
I tell you chum – it’s time to come – blow your horn
In civilized jungles – females adore
The lions who come on swinging – if you want to score – roar
You can be either read to – or be the reader
You can be either lead – or be the leader
Don’t wait until you’re told – you’re old and worn
Take in some air – and get your lips puckered
Before you find – you’re simply too tuckered
I tell you chum – it’s time to come – blow your horn
