Perry Como - "Girl With The Golden Braids" lyrics

( I'm in love with the girl with the golden,
can't live without the girl with the golden . . . braids! )

I saw a gal with golden hair
dancin' as I played
never saw a gal so fair
as the girl with the golden braids!
I was travellin' with a band,
came to town and stayed
knew I'd have to seek the hand
of the girl with the golden braids!

Oh! . . . Dance girl, dance an' sway,
dance an' steal my heart away,
so many fellas stand in line
but I knew you'd be mine!
Yes, you'd be mine!

Knew I had to take a chance,
so I made a trade
gave my fiddle for a dance
with the girl with the golden braids
Now I'm thru forever more,
roamin' never paid
found that life that I adore
with the girl with the golden braids!

Oh! . . . Dance girl, dance an' sway,
dance an' steal my heart away,
so many fellas stand in line
but I knew you'd be mine!
Oh! . . . you'd be mine!

< instrumental break >

Dance girl, dance an' sway,
dance an' steal my heart away,
so many fellas stand in line
but I knew you'd be mine!
You'd be mine!

Now the boys are talkin' of
my last serenade
lucky me, I'm so in love
with the girl with the golden braids!
Ever since that night in June,
life's a rosy shade,
dancin' on my honeymoon
with the gal with the golden braids!

Oh! . . . Dance girl, dance an' sway,
dance an' steal my heart away,
so many fellas stand in line
but I knew you'd be mine!

Dance girl, dance an' sway,
dance an' steal my heart away,
so many fellas stand in line
but I knew you'd be mine!

Yes . . . I knew you'd be mine!
