He's not so good in a crowd but when you get him alone, 
you'd be surprised.
He isn't much at a dance but then when he takes you home, 
you'd be surprised.
He doesn't look like much of a lover,
don't judge a book by its cover,
'cause he's got the face of an angel but
there's a devil in his eye!
He's such a delicate thing but when he's starting to squeeze, 
you'd be surprised.
He doesn't look very strong but when you sit on his knee,
you'd be surprised.
At a party or at a ball, 
I've got to admit he's nothing at all,
but in a Morris chair, you'd be surprised.
He doesn't say very much but when he's starting to speak, 
you'd be surprised.
He's not so good at the start but at the end of the week, 
you'd be surprised.
On a streetcar or in a train, 
you'd think he was born without any brains.
But in a taxi cab, and when he starts to grab,
I say in a taxi cab, you'd be surprised.
This one's a real danger!
