MILLIE:

No canary in a tree for me

This canary's ready to fly free

Cut the cord

Is that a man I once adored?

He's nothing but an albatross

No great loss

Doublecrosser

Forget about the boy

Pull the plug

Ain't he the one who pulled the rug

He's lower than an alley cat

Dirty rat

And I flatter

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

And in the moonlight

Don't you think about him

Sister, you're much better off without him

You can blow the blues a kiss goodbye

And put the sun back in the sky

For when he comes crawlin'

I'm not fallin'

Shout hooray and halleluh!

Now me and mister wrong are through

I'll find myself another beau

Who I know is no rover

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

Forget about -

Jimmy, oh Jimmy, Jimmy

MILLIE:

Jimmy, oh Jimmy, silly boy

Gee, what a real swell guy

MISS FLANNERY and TYPISTS (at the same time):

Cut the cord, is that a man I once adored?

He's nothing but an albatross

No great loss, doublecrosser

ALL:

Forget about the boy

MILLIE:

Jimmy, oh Jimmy, what great joy

He makes my troubles fly

MISS FLANNERY and TYPISTS (at the same time):

Pull the plug, ain't he the one who pulled the rug?

He's lower than an alley cat, dirty rat

And I flatter

ALL: Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy!

(The typists break into defiant tap, topped by MISS FLANNERY in a tap solo.)

Shout hooray and halleluh!

Now that me and mister wrong are through

I'll find myself another beau

Who I know is no rover

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

And in the moonlight don't you think about him

Sister you're much better off without him

You can blow the blues a kiss goodbye

And put the sun back in the sky

MISS FLANNERY and TYPISTS:

For when he comes crawlin'

MILLIE:

I'm not fallin'

ALL:

Hallelujah!

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy

Forget about the boy!
