Lyrics STEP RIGHT UP
AND MEET THE KID HERSELF,
THE MOST IMPRESSIVE SIGHT
IN NEW YORK CITY,
SHE CAN DO
WHAT VERY FEW
CAN DO
SHE EVEN TALKS HUNGARIAN.
STEP RIGHT UP
AND YOU WILL ANSWER,
YES,
THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD
ARE EIGHT NOT SEVEN,
ON THE LIST
BESIDE THE PYRAMIDS,
YOU GOTTA PUT
THE KID HERSELF.

THE KID HERSELF
GOES ANYPLACE
AND FELLOWS
FOLLOW HER LIKE CATTLE.
LOOK AT THE FORM,
LOOK AT THE FACE,
NOW DON'T THEY MAKE
YOUR BACK TEETH RATTLE?
ON TOP OF WHICH
SHE'S FILTHY RICH,
SHE SELLS SKETCHES
BY THE GROSS.
WHICH ONLY GOES TO SHOW
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSING,
JOE,
IF YOU MISSED
MISS KID HERSELF.

SO KINDLY STEP RIGHT UP
AND MEET THE KID HERSELF,
THE MOST AMAZING MISS
IN ALL OF NEW YORK CITY,
SHE HAS GOT
WHAT VERY FEW HAVE GOT
YOU OUGHT TO SEE HER STUDIOS.
STEP RIGHT UP
AND YOU WILL CAST YOUR VOTE,
OUTSIDE IN BRYANT PARK
THEY OUGHT TO PUT A STATUE.
THERE SHE IS,
SO KINDLY DOFF YOUR LID,
IN HONOR
OF THE KID HERSELF.

THE KID HERSELF
TOOK HER IQ
AND HER PROFESSORS
WERE ASTOUNDED.
THAT GORGEOUS THING,
SHE'S BRAINY TOO,
WHEN WAS A LADY
SO WELL ROUNDED.
WHAT SHE CAN COOK,
DON'T OVERLOOK,
NO OTHER SQUASH
CAN COME CLOSE.
YES,
SHE'S A TRIPLE THREAT,
YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET,
UNTIL YOU'VE MET
MISS KID HERSELF.

THE KID HERSELF
WHO CAN THAT BE?
HAS SO MUCH POISE,
THAT WOULD BE ME!
ON HER
A PERSIAN LAMB
LOOKS SABLE.
THE PRINCE OF WALES
I KNOCK HIM DEAD!
WHO SHE DESTROYS,
I CALL HIM ED.
PROPOSES TWICE A DAY
BY CABLE.
AWAY OUT WEST
AWAY OUT WEST.
AT MGM,
YOU HEARD OF THEM?
LOUIE B. MAYER'S
ON THE PHONE,
TO CALL HER,
FLORA, DEAR,
PLEASE HURRY UP
OUT HERE,
WE WANT TO STAR
THE KID HERSELF.

ON THE LIST
BESIDES THE PYRAMIDS,
BESIDES THE HANGING GARDENS
AND THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES,
AND THE OTHER FOUR.
YOU GOT TOA PUT
THE KID HERSELF.
THE KID HERSELF
HAS SO MUCH CLASS,
AND SUCH AN ELEGANT DEMEANOR,
THE OTHER GIRLS
WHO SEE HER PASS
CAN FEEL THEIR FACES
GROWING GREENER.
AND SO THEY WILL,
HER LOOKS CAN KILL,
YOU MUSTN'T TAKE
A LETHAL DOSE.
ALTHOUGH YOU MIGHT REPLY,
WHAT BETTER WAY TO DIE
THAN IN THE ARMS
OF THE KID HERSELF,
THE KID HERSELF!
