The Babbitt And The Bromide Lyrics


by Fred Astaire / Gene Kelly. From Ziegfeld Follies.


Both: A Babbitt met a Bromide on the avenue one day, And held a conversation in their own peculiar way.
They both were solid citizens,
They both had been around,
And as they spoke you clearly saw their feet were on the ground.

Fred: Hello!
Gene: How are you?
Fred: How's the folks?
Gene: What's new?
Fred: I'm great!
Gene: That's good!
Fred: Ha-ha!
Gene: Knock wood!
Fred: Well, well..
Gene: That's life..
Fred: What do you know?
Gene: How's the wife?
Fred: Gotta run...
Gene: Oh my,
Fred: Ta-ta,
Gene: Olive oil,
Fred: Goodbye!

(DANCE BREAK)

Both: Ten years went quickly by for both these substantial men, And then it happened that one day they chance to meet again.
That they had both developed in ten years there was no doubt And so of course they had an awful lot to talk about.

Fred: Hello!
Gene: How are you?
Fred: How's the folks?
Gene: What's new?
Fred: I'm great!
Gene: That's good!
Fred: Ha-ha!
Gene: Knock wood!
Fred: Well, well..
Gene: That's life..
Fred: What do you know?
Gene: How's the wife?
Fred: Gotta run...
Gene: Oh my,
Fred: Ta-ta,
Gene: Olive oil,
Fred: Goodbye!

(DANCE BREAK)

Both: Before they met again some twenty years they had to wait, This time it happened up above inside St Peter's gate.
A harp each one was carrying and both were sprouting wings, And this is what they said as they were strumming on the strings...

Fred: Hello!
Gene: How are you?
Fred: How's the folks?
Gene: What's new?
Fred: I'm great!
Gene: That's good!
Fred: Ha-ha!
Gene: Knock wood!
Fred: Well, well..
Gene: That's life..
Fred: What do you know?
Gene: How's the wife?
Fred: Gotta fly...
Gene: Oh my,
Fred: Ta-ta,
Gene: Olive oil,
Fred: Goodbye!

(DANCE BREAK!)
