about

1946
Words & Music: Don George & Duke Ellington
arranged by Don 'donnie joe' Sweeney

lyrics

Tulip or turnip
Rosebud or rhubarb
Fillet or plain beef stew
Tell me, tell me, tell me, dream face
What am I to do

Diamond or doorknob
Sapphire of sawdust
Champagne or just home brew
Tell me, tell me, tell me, dream face
What am I to you

Do I get the booby-prize
Or will I be the hero
Am I headed for blue skies
Or is my ceiling zero

Tulip or turnip
Moonbeam or mudpie
Bankroll or I.O.U.
Tell me, tell me, tell me, dream face
What am I to you
What am I to you

Tell me, tell me, dream face
What am I to you
