Irving Berlin, lyrics
Call Me Up Some Rainy Afternoon
Irving Berlin

[1st verse:]
Nellie Green met Harry Lee
At a masquerade the other night
He liked she and she liked he
Just a case of love at single sight
He took Nellie home that eve
Also took the number of her phone
Just before he took his leave
Nellie whispered in the cutest tone

[Refrain:]
Call me up some rainy afternoon
I'll arrange for a quiet little spoon
Think of all the joy and bliss
We can hug and we can talk about the weather
We can have a quiet little talk
I will see that my mother takes a walk
Mum’s the word when we meet
Be a mason, don't repeat
Angel eyes, are you wise?
Goodbye

[2nd verse:]
He look'd wise, then looked for rain
Sure enough it rained that Saturday
"Give me three, four, five, six Main
Nellie dear, prepare I'm on my way"
When he rang the front door bell
No one there responded to his call
Soon he heard his pretty Nell
Singing to somebody in the hall

[2nd refrain:]
Call me up some rainy afternoon
Then again how’s the evening for a spoon
Call around tomorrow night
We can then put out that fire in the furnace
My mama will sure be out of town
She'll be entertained by Mister Brown
My Papa won't be 'round, he will call on Missus Brown
Angel pet, don't forget
Goodbye
