NORAH, NORAH
("Come, come to the Pole!")

His name wasn't Peary, nor yet was it Cook,
Still, for the North Pole he had ventured to look;
And what's more, he found it, his friends all declare,
Yes, found it and found it was lonely up there.
So once, when an airship was passing that way,
He sent a note home to his girlfriend to say.

Chorus: Norah, Norah, Come, come to the Pole!
Norah, Norah, come up and join our explorer,
Nora, don't say no dear and soon, soon, soon,
We'll have a nice little all-over-ice little Actic honeymoon!
Norah, Norah, Come, come to the Pole!
Norah, Norah, come up and join our explorer,
Nora, don't say no dear and soon, soon, soon,
We'll have a nice little 'all-over-ice little Actic honeymoon.

'I haven't much money,' wrote he, 'but it's clear,
It won't cost a lot for a honeymoon here.
As long as you're nigh, 'twill be honey and spice,
How lovely to live upon kisses and ice!'
Just then he perceived a big bear on the prowl;
He climbed up the pole and he started to howl;

Chorus:

His sweetheart refuses, (the wise little soul!)
To go to her sweetheart, way up at the Pole;
For all that she knows, he's still lingering there,
His time fully occupied dodging the bear.
But millionaire pa-pa has chartered a boat,
To bring back to her the explorer who wrote,

Chorus:
