I'd Do It With A Smile (Formby George)

When I used to find troubles come my way I always wished they wouldn't stay But I'm not so sure since you came along Whether I was right or wrong. If you ask me would I entertain the lions at the zoo By singing in beside them just before their lunch was due Would I do it? I'd do more, I'd do it with a smile. If you ask me would I take a trip to Paris in the spring And see the girls and watch the thrills and never do a thing Would I do it? I'd do more, I'd do it with a smile. I'm not a super sort of man, there isn't much that I can do but sing Yet if you watch me at a fight, I could knock Joe Louis out the ring If you ask me to be hypnotized and go into a trance Or even pay my income tax just ten years in advance. Would I do it? I'd do more, ya ma'am, I'd do it with a smile. When we're all alone, no-one near to see Foolish thoughts occur to me. Maybe you can guess what they're all about So I'll let the secret out. If you ask me would I settle down and build a little home, Carve the ham and push the pram. and never never roam. Would you do it? I'd do more, I'd do it with a smile. If you ask me could your mother stay and all your maiden aunts Or suggest I take my trousers off so you could wear the pants. Would I do it? I'd do more, I'd do it with a smile. I don't know much about romance, That is something I've been frightened of, Yet someone taught me how to dance So maybe you can teach me how to love. If you ask me would I sew for you or knit some baby clothes Or take the baby's nappy off and wipe his little nose. Would I do it? I'd do more, I'd do it with a smile.
