When a fellow feels he’s got to win a girlie’s handie,
He will send her loads of flowers, books, and tons of candy
The overhead is big;
Oh, how they make us dig!
There's no use stepping out that way – the thing to do is lay low
You can’t win by treating her as if she wore a halo.
What is your solution?
Tell us if you can.
Well, here's my contribution
You’ve got to treat them high hat!
Don’t let them know that you care;
But act like a frigidaire*.
You’ll win them like that!
Put on your gayest cravat,
But keep your feet on the ground.
Oh boy! how they’ll come around!
Just treat them high hat!
