Lyrics I FOUND MY THRILL
ON BLUEBERRY HILL,
ON BLUEBERRY HILL,
WHEN I FOUND YOU.
THE MOON STOOD STILL
ON BLUEBERRY HILL,
IT LINGERED UNTIL
MY DREAM CAME TRUE.

THE WIND
IN THE WILLOW
PLAYED LOVE'S
SWEET MELODY.
BUT ALL OF THOSE
VOWS YOU MADE
WERE NEVER TO BE.

THOUGH WE'RE APART,
YOU'RE PART OF ME STILL,
FOR YOU WERE MY THRILL
ON BLUEBERRY HILL.

Lyrics [verse]:
IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT A SWEETIE
AND YOU WONDER WHY
YOU HAVEN'T GOT SOMEONE
TO LOVE,
IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT A SWEETIE,
HERE'S THE REASON WHY
YOU HAVEN'T GOT
SOMEONE TO LOVE.
GENTLEMEN FROM MAINE
TO CALIFORNIA,
GIVE ME YOUR ATTENTION
WHILE I WARN YA:

[Chorus]:
YOU GOTTA BE FOOTBALL HERO
TO GET ALONG
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.
YOU GOTTA BE
A TOUCHDOWN GETTER,
YOU BET.
IF YOU WANNA GET
A BABY TO PET.
THE FACT THAT YOU ARE RICH
OR HANDSOME
WON'T GET YOU ANYTHING
IN CURLS;
YOU GOTTA BE A FOOTBALL HERO
TO GET ALONG
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.

[patter verse]:
EV'RY FEMALE FLAMING YOUTH
GOES FOR GAGLE,
GRANGE AND BOOTH,
FRIEDMAN,
NEWMAN
AND CARIDEO.
KOSKY,
OOSTERBAAN
AND KURTH
ARE RULERS
OF THE EARTH,
'CAUSE THE LADIES
LOVE 'EM,
LOVE 'EM SO.
IF THE GIRLS ARE
WHAT YOU WANNA GET,
MAN,
HURRY
AND BECOME
A TRIPLE THREAT,
MAN.

[Chorus 2]:
YOU GOTTA BE A FOOTBALL HERO
TO GET ALONG
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.
IN SPITE OF ALL
A MILLION DOLLARS CAN DO,
A TACKLE OR TWO
WILL MEAN MORE TO YOU.
IF YOU CAN
MAKE THE WINNING TOUCHDOWN,
YOU'LL NEVER
HAVE TO BUY THEM PEARLS;
YOU GOTTA BE A FOOTBALL HERO
TO GET ALONG
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.
