” What makes a fellow start thinkin’ of fallin’ in love? It’s not the season, the reason is plain as the moon
It’s just Elmer’s Tune
What makes a lady of eighty go out on the loose? Why does a gander meander in search of a goose? What puts the kick in a chicken, the magic in June? It’s just Elmer’s Tune”
