THERE ARE NICE GIRLS EVERYWHERE

Travellers all complain, going back home again,
From across the main, tho' they might not obtain'.
Rubies, diamonds or pearls, they will always want the girls,
And they'll tell you how they long to gaze on sweet peroxide curls,
From their yarns about no girls, that's tommy-rot
It's the people all at home, I'll tell you what....

Chorus: There are nice girls everywhere, there are nice girls everywhere,
From Peru to Timbuktu, there's a girl for me and a girl for you.
On the mountains of Piccadilly, in the wilds of Leicester Square,
Where e'er you roam hoping you will see them home,
There are nice girls everywhere.

Next the fair gazelles on the Dardanelles
Give me lou loubelles, wearing rows of shells
Tho' their noses may be flat and their hair just like a mat,
When you've nothing else to spoon well, we'll let it go at that.
Oh, the beauty of a Zulu may be such,
Her dresses do not cost you half as much,

Chorus: There are nice girls everywhere, there are nice girls everywhere,
From Peru to Timbuktu, there's a girl for me and a girl for you.
On the mountains of Piccadilly, in the wilds of Leicester Square,
From Manchester to Dover saying, 'Archibald, give over!'
There are nice girls everywhere.

Chorus: There are nice girls everywhere, there are nice girls everywhere,
From Peru to Timbuktu, there's a girl for me and a girl for you.
On the mountains of Piccadilly, in the wilds of Leicester Square,
Down country lanes at night, if you care to strike a light,
There are nice girls everywhere.
