Frank duets with the girl [Girl singer]
[Wonder how I feel living on a hill top,]
[Looking on an ocean, beautiful and still,]
This is what I need, this is what I’ve longed for,
Someone young and smiling, climbing up my hill.
[We are not alike, probably I’d bore him]
[He’s a cautious Frenchman, I’m a little hick]
Younger men than I, officers and doctors,
Probably pursue her, she could have her pick.
[Wonder why I feel jittery and jumpy,]
[I’m like a schoolgirl waiting before a dance]
Can I ask her now, I am like a schoolboy,
What will be her answer, do I have a chance?
