You'd Be Surprised
You'd Be Surprised
[1st verse:]
Johnny was bashful and shy
Nobody understood why
Mary loved him
All the other girls passed him by
Everyone wanted to know
How she could pick such a beau
With a twinkle in her eye
She made this reply

[1st chorus:]
He's not so good in a crowd but when you get him alone
You'd be surprised
He isn't much at a dance but then when he takes you home
You'd be surprised

He doesn't look like much of a lover
But don't judge a book by it's cover
He's got the face of an angel
But there's a devil in his eyes

He's such a delicate thing but when he starts in to squeeze
You'd be surprised
He doesn't look very strong but when you sit on his knees
You'd be surprised

At a party or at a ball
I've got to admit that he's nothing at all
But in an easy chair
You'd be surprised

[2nd verse:]
Mary continued to praise
Johnny's remarkable ways
To the ladies
And you know advertising pays
Now Johnny's never alone
He has the busiest phone
Almost ev'ry other day
A new girl will say

[2nd chorus:]
He's not so good in the house but on a bench in the park
You'd be surprised
He isn't much in the light but when he gets in the dark
You'd be surprised
I know he looks so slow and so weary
But you don't know the half of it, dearie
He looks as cold as an Eskimo
But there's a fire in his eyes
He doesn't say very much but when he starts in to speak
You'd be surprised
He's not so good at the start but at the end of the week
You'd be surprised
On a streetcar or on a train
You'd think he was born without any brain
But in a taxicab
You'd be surprised
