MISTER JONES

Mister Jones, I'd like to speak to you
For a moment, if you don't mind
I love your daughter and I
Want-a make her mine

Mrs. Jones, please be seated
I know what's running through your mind
But I love your daughter and
Your daughter, she wants to be mine

I work in a shoe store on Main Street
And make about fifty dollars ev'ry week
But I'll work hard and get a raise
If you'll just let me have her for always

Mister Jones, don't get excited
'Cause we've already made up our minds
I love your daughter and
Your daughter she wants to be mine

I'll treat her good and buy her things
Like lots of furs and diamond rings
I'll buy her a cottage, a car and a boat
If you'll be kind enough to go on our note

Mister Jones, don't get mad
We'll get along, won't we dad
'Cause I love your daughter and
Your daughter, she wants to be mine
