MY ACTOR MAN
 
div
 

My latest beau's an actor, he's a most artistic gent.
He says he's fond of me because I've got a temp'rament,
And I'm in love with him because he really is so nice.
He's got a way with him you couldn't buy at any price.
He makes me feel Oh! so ideal!

Chorus: My actor man! my actor man!
Such a gentlemanly fellow
With a voice so deep and mellow.
How he talks, the way he walks!
He simply is a treat that can't be beat, he's grand!
His actor clothes! his actor pose,
And everything about him's idealistic!
And oh! when he makes love to me,
Well, everything he does is so artistic.

He's never got much money, he's too generous I suppose.
I always pay the bill whenever out with me he goes.
But oh! it's worth the money to sit by him on a chair
And hear him order all the best that's on the bill of fare.
He is so grand, I hold his hand,

Chorus: My actor man! my actor man!
Such a gentlemanly fellow
With a voice so deep and mellow.
How he talks, the way he walks!
He simply is a treat that can't be beat, he's grand!
His actor clothes! his actor pose,
And everything about him's idealistic!
He lets me pay in such a way!
Well, everything he does is so artistic.

I meet him at the stage-door, then he takes me out to dine.
He seems to get poetic when he's had a glass of wine.
Upon my lips to feel his kiss is simply heavenly!
There's something so artistic in the way he cuddles me.
I'm not alarmed, I'm simply charmed.

Chorus: My actor man! my actor man!
Such a gentlemanly fellow
With a voice so deep and mellow.
How he talks, the way he walks!
He simply is a treat that can't be beat, he's grand!
His actor clothes! his actor pose,
And everything about him's idealistic!
He'll squeeze me tight and then good-night!
Well, everything he does is so artistic.
