Groucho Marx

"Hooray for Captain Spaulding"

[Everyone in the song sings except Zeppo, who talk-sings]

[Zeppo, talk-singing]
There's something that I'd like to state
That he's too modest to relate
The Captain is a moral man
Sometimes he finds it trying

[Groucho]
This fact I'll emphasize with stress:
I never take a drink unless
Somebody's buying!

[Party guests]
The Captain is a very moral man!

[Zeppo, talk-singing]
If he hears anything obscene
He'll naturally repel it

[Groucho]
I hate a dirty joke I do
Unless it's told by someone whooo --
Knows how to tell it!

[Party guests]
The Captain is a very moral man!
Hooray for Captain Spaulding
The African Explorer!

[Groucho]
Did someone call me Schnorrer?

[Party guests]
Hooray hooray hooray!

[Zeppo, talk-singing]
He went into the jungle
Where all the monkeys THROW nuts

[Groucho]
If I stay here I'll GO nuts

[Party guests]
Hooray hooray hooray!
He put all his reliance
In courage and defiance
And risked his life for science!

[Groucho]
Hey hey!

[Margaret Dumont]
He is the only white man
Who covered every acre --

[Groucho]
I think I'll try and make her!

[Party guests]
Hooray hooray hooray!
He put all his reliance
In courage and defiance
And risked his life for science

[Groucho]
Hey hey!

[Party guests]
Hooray for Captain Spaulding
The African explorer!
He brought his name undying fame
And that is why we say:
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

[Groucho, spoken]
My friends, I am highly gratified at this
Magnificent display of effusion. And I want you to know -

[Party guests]
Hooray for Captain Spaulding
The African explorer!
He brought his name undying fame
And that is why we say:
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

[Groucho, spoken]
My friends, I am highly gratified at this
Magnificent display of effusion. And I want you to know -

[Party Guests]
Hooray for Captain Spaulding
The African explorer!
He brought his name undying fame
And that is why we say:
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

[Groucho, spoken]
My friends, I am highly gratified at this
Magnificent display of effusion. And I want you to know -

[Groucho, singing]
Hooray for Captain Spaulding
The African (mumble)
(spoken): Well, somebody's gotta do it!
