Frankfurter Sandwiches

Written by Harry Pease/Al Dubin/Ed G. Nelson © 1927

Since the world began
The girl expects the man
To bring her tokens of his love
Some bring bags of gold
Their ladies love to hold
And jewels bright as stars above

But my sweetheart's ideals
Are so much higher, so much higher,
And here's how I fulfill
Her heart's desire…

Every night I bring her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

How my baby loves those
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

I tried to win her with flowers, flowers
All kinds of sweetness
`Til I found out my baby's weakness

Every night she whispers
Thanks for the sandwiches
Thanks for the sandwiches
But I fear there's something wrong

Instead of her billing and cooing
All she starts doing is chewing
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
All night long

Say…

Every night I bring her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

How my baby loves those
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

I tried to win her with candy, candy
Ice cream and custard
But how she likes hot dogs with mustard

Every night she whispers
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
But I fear there's something wrong

Listen…

Even when it was Yom Kippur,
Quietly I had to slip her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
All night long!

These are the lyrics transcribed from the version sung by Harry Rose in Metro Movietone Revue (1929).
