No, No, Nora

VERSE 1

In the apartment above me,
There is the lovingest pair.
I don't know what she has to be jealous of,
He has a face that just a mother could love.
And still I know she's always worried
Some girl will steal her prize away.
She's always asking: " Is there somebody else? "
I guess it's just to hear him say:

REFRAIN 1

" No, no, Nora, nobody but you, dear,
You know, Nora, yours truly is true, dear.
When you accuse me of flirting,
I wouldn't, I couldn't, I love you so.
I have chances, too many to mention,
Never give 'em a bit of attention.
And would I trade you for Venus?
No, no, Nora, no, no. "

VERSE 2

She has a lot of detectives
Who check him up ev'ry day.
She's read about those men who lead double lives,
She's making sure she won't be " one of those wives. "
She thinks he looks like Douglas Fairbanks,
Altho' he has Ben Turpin's eyes.
A hundred times a day she calls on the phone,
And ev'ry time she does he sighs:

REFRAIN 2

" No, no, Nora, nobody but you, dear,
You know, Nora, that I stick like glue, dear.
And when you're speaking of Sheiking,
I wouldn't, I couldn't, I love you so.
I see eyes that are full of affection,
But I look in another direction.
And do I care for the Follies?
No, no, Nora, no, no. "
