Song: I'm In The Market For You
Lyrics: Joseph McCarthy(1)

Music: James F. Hanley(2)
Year: 1930(3)
Genre: Musical
Country: USA


I might as well confess it,
You've got me in your spell;
And you don't have to guess it,
I kinder think you're swell.
Don't wanna see a doctor,
But someone I must tell.

CHORUS:
I'll have to see my broker,
Find out what he can do,
'Cause I'm in the market for you-oo-oo.
There won't be any joker,
With Margin I'm all through;
'Cause I want you outright it's true.
Your' going up, up, up in my estimation,
I want a thousand shares of your caresses too
We'll count the hugs and kiss, When dividends are due,
'Cause I'm in the market for you. I'll you.

There's some abbreviation,
For ev'ry stock, I've heard;
For ev'ry fluctuation,
Somebody gives the word.
What was the last quotation,
On Y.O.U. preferred.

CHORUS:
I'll have to see my broker,
Find out what he can do,
'Cause I'm in the market for you-oo-oo.
You might find there's a joker,
a big reaction, too;
'Cause my ticker tells me it's due.
You're going up, up, up in my estimation,
But many wiser heads have been mistaken too.
You've got me in a corner,
Now show me what to do,
'Cause I'm in the market for you. I'll you.
