I Can't Make Her Happy, That Old Girl of Mine

    (Pollack, Clare)

Transcribed from vocals by Cliff Edwards, recorded October 3, 1928,
From The Vintage Recordings of Cliff Edwards (Ukulele Ike), Take Two Records, TT419CD.

You don't see me with my old girl, anymore.
You won't see me with my old girl, anymore.
We can't get along,
Guess I must be wrong;
I've said this a million times before.

I can't make her happy,
But I'd love someone to make her happy,
That old girl of mine.

I just don't deserve her,
But there must be someone who deserves her,
That old girl of mine.

You know that she's refined, just the kind
Loves a family,
I'm the sort, who's a sport,
Want to be wild and free.

So, I can't make her happy,
But I'd love someone to make her happy,
That old girl of mine.

I can't make her happy,
But I'd love someone to make her happy,
That old girl of mine.

I don't appreciate her,
But there's someone who'd appreciate her,
That old girl of mine.

You know that she's ideal, oh, so real,
Sweet as she can be;
And I would give all to live
If she she'd be meant for me.

But I can't make her happy,
So I'd love someone to make her happy,
That old girl of mine.
