The Girl That I Marry
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


The girl that I marry will have to be
As soft and as pink as a nursery
The girl I call my own

Will wear satins and laces and smell of cologne
Her nails will be polished and, in her hair,
She'll wear a gardenia and I'll be there
Stead of flittin', I'll be sittin'

Next to her and she'll purr like a kitten
A doll I can carry, the girl that I marry must be
Her nails will be polished and, in her hair,
She'll wear a gardenia and I'll be there
Stead of flittin', I'll be sittin'

Next to her and she'll purr like a kitten
A doll I can carry, the girl that I marry must be

I love this song... ecscepially in Annie Get Your Gun

Michael Evans

My dad was in Belgium during WW2 & he recorded himself singing this is a sort of booth for his soon to be wife. I had the steel record for years & would play it often at 33rpm just to feel closer to my dad, who has been gone for 31yrs now & I miss him more every day, thank you Frank, & thank you to whoever uploaded it you brought back many happy memories. Mrs Lee Evans (nee Keefe).

good song

Joe Harkins

What is the reason for the reverb? it's not on the original. Sinatra never used reverb.

Am I the only one who says provolone instead of cologne 😅?

Johan Greybe

Hugo and Luigi Singers version sang "perfume" instead of cologne - most beautiful version of all.Will make my day if I can ever find it?

SONG BOOK

Masterful rendition by F.S. from the great I.B. songbook repertoire

john bingham

A pretty good indication of what they thought of women in the old days.I like the bit "next to me and she"ll purr like a kitten.
