Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

Perry Como Sings Hits from Broadway Shows ~ 1956
 
A Bushel And A Peck
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
 
What'cha doin' Hutton?
Doodlin' . . . can you doodle?
Can I doodle? ~ I can't get it outta my noodle!
 
How come?
 
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck, 
a bushel an' a peck and a hug around the neck ( Ouch! )
Hug around the neck and a barrel an' a heap, 
barrel an' a heap an' I'm talkin' in my sleep! 
About you! ( About me? ) Yes, about you!
My heart is leapin', havin' trouble sleepin' ! 
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck, 
you bet your purdy neck I do!
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
 
Do you like me Perry?  Oh very, do you like me Hutton? 
Like a glutton!  So, where's your "Como" button? 
Oh! I love you a bushel an' a peck  ( How much? )
a bushel an' a peck though you make my heart a wreck!
Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess,
make my life a mess, yes a mess of happiness!
About you! ( About me? ) Yes, about you!
You're gonna grieve me, if an' you ever leave me!
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck, 
you bet your purdy neck I do!
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
 
Heh heh, it's gettin' kinda quiet around here! 
Oh! we can fix that Perry boy! Let's go!
I love you a bushel an' a peck, 
a bushel an' a peck and it beats be all to heck, 
beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arms about you! 
About you, the cows an' chickens, let em go to the dickens 
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck, 
you bet your purdy neck I do!
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
 
. . . it's gettin' kinda quiet again! 
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
 
. . . an octave lower please! 
 
( Doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo, 
doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )
