Guy Is A Guy Lyrics

Artist: Doris Day


A GUY IS A GUY
- words and music by Oscar Brand
- adapted from the naughty World War II soldiers' song "A Gob Is A Slob".
Brand cleaned up the lyrics. "A Gob Is A Slob" was based on the 1719
British song "I Went To the Alehouse (A Knave Is A Knave)"
- lyrics as recorded by Doris Day in 1951

I walked down the street like a good girl should
He followed me down the street like I knew he would
Because a guy is a guy wherever he may be
So listen and I'll tell you what this fella did to me

I walked to my house like a good girl should
He followed me to my house like I knew he would
Because a guy is a guy wherever he may be
So listen while I tell you what this fella did to me

I never saw the boy before
So nothin' could be sillier
At closer range his face was strange
But his manner was familiar

So I walked up the stairs like a good girl should
He followed me up the stairs like I knew he would
Because a guy is a guy wherever he may be
So listen and I'll tell you what this fella did to me

I stepped to my door like a good girl should
He stopped at my door like I knew he would
Because a guy is a guy wherever he may be
So listen while I tell you what this fella did to me

He asked me for a good-night kiss
I said, "It's still good day"
I would have told him more except
His lips got in the way

So I talked to my ma like a good girl should
And Ma talked to Pa like I knew she would
And they all agreed on a married life for me
The guy is my guy wherever he may be

So I walked down the aisle like a good girl should
He followed me down the aisle like I knew he would
Because a guy is a guy wherever he may be
And now you've heard the story of what someone did to me

And that's what he did to me

This is a cute song, but THANK GOD that no longer happens! No forced marriage from one kiss for me!

Cute? It has always creeped me out. Some stranger follows a woman all the way to her door, demands a kiss, and then takes it by force? How romantic. The only redeeming value is that it was cleaned up an even creepier song. (At least this version leaves out the original's actual and adds an inexplicable marriage... almost as if the message is that gals will love you if you stalk and molest them. Eesh.)
