I Kissed A Gal

Writer(s): Betty Comden / Adolph Green / Roger Edens
sung by Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra in the movie
“Take Me Out To The Ball Game”

I kissed a gal in old Wyoming,
She rode a horse in a wild west show
When I said, baby, I’m bent on roaming
She cried we just got started
And she thought we can’t be parted,
When I left her broken hearted at the rodeo.,
Oh yes indeed, yes indeedy
Yes indeed, the boy said no
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
I left her broken hearted at the rodeo.

I kissed a gal way out in Boysie
That’s Idaho where potatoes grow
I went away and her sobs were noisy
I said I’ll see you later,
And I hopped the nearest freighter,
Left her holding a potater down in Idaho.
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
Yes indeed, the boy said no,
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
She’s left with her potater down in Idaho.

I kissed a gal in old Poughkeepsie
That ‘s where the college of Vassar’s found,
She couldn’t study, love made her tipsy
But she just couldn’t pass er,
And so she just turned on the gasser,
So the sweetest gal at Vassar’s in the cold cold ground.
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
Yes indeed, the boy’s unbound,
Yes Indeed, yes indeedy,
The sweetest gal at Vassar’s in the cold cold ground.

I met a gal when we hit Manhattan,
A sumptuous babe dressed in silk and lace,
So I start to tempt her with satin
I told her how I want her
And she then started to simmer
So I thought I’d try to kiss her but she slapped my face.
Yes indeed, Yes indeedy
Yes indeed, was in first base
Yes Indeed, yes indeedy,
I thought I’d kiss her, but she slapped my face.

I kissed a gal down in Mississippi,
A Southern belle named Emmy Jo
I thought for once love has got me tippy
She called me Lucky Seven,
Said my kisses were from heaven,
But I learned she was eleven, and I had to go.
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
Yes indeed, the boy said no
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
I learned she was eleven and I had to go.
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
Yes indeed, the boy said nay,
Yes indeed, yes indeedy,
We’re hot as electric wires
Twice as hot as forest fires,
And the biggest pair of liars.
Liars? Huhhuh. What the hey!
We’re the greatest pair of liars,
We’re the greatest pair of liars in the USA
