ADVISE FROM AL DUBIN IN THE 1933 HIT

Verse 1)
What’s cute about a little cutie
It’s her beauty not brain
Old father time will never harm you
If your charm still remains
After you grow old baby
You don’t have to be a cold baby

(Chorus 1)
Keep young and beautiful
It’s your duty to be beautiful
Keep young and beautiful
If you want to be loved
Don’t fail to do your stuff
With a little powder and a puff
Keep young and beautiful
If you want to be loved.
If you’re wise, exercise all the fat off
Take it off, off-a here, off-a there,
When you’re seen anywhere with your hat off
Have a marcel wave in your hair
Take care of all those charms
And you’ll always be in someone’s arms
Keep young and beautiful
If you want to be loved.

(Verse 2 - from British sheet music version)
What makes a girl’s acquaintance bigger
It’s her figure and poise
Her duty should be to retain it
To maintain it for boys
Old age isn’t real baby
You are as old as you feel baby
