​My Man Is On The Make

This song is by Helen Kane and appears on the album Great Original Performances 1928 - 1930 (1999).

Love is blind,
Love is king!
Love's the one unselfish thing.
But I loved him at first sight,
Ah, but he didn't treat me right...

My man is on the make,
Ooh, he won't be hard to take.
Oh, Mama, get ready my wedding veil.
'Cause he's trembling on the brink
One push and down he'll sink.
Oh, Papa, your daughter won't fail.

He's worked himself into a lather, and he's ready to pop-pop-pop-pop
All ready to gather,
And I'm ready for red hot stuff.
Oh, cut up my wedding cake,
Here's where I get my break
'Cause my man is on the make!

My man is on the make!
He won't be hard to take!
Oh, Mama, get ready my wedding veil.
He's tremblin' on the brink!
One push and down he'll sink!
Oh, Papa, your daughter won't fail.

He's worked himself into a lather, and he's ready to pop-pop-pop-pop
All ready to gather, and I'm ready to bop-bop-bop-bop boop-op-a-doop
Oh, cut up my wedding cake,
Here's where I'm gonna get my break
'Cause my man is on the make!
