no, no, nanette lyrics – tea for two

we’re going to atlantic city,
we have packed our dresses pretty,
soon you’ll see us mingling with the throng.

before we start on our vacation
we have one more obligation,
let us ask nanette to come along.

women: why should we take nanette along, she’ll be an extra dame.
men: because we fellows like nanette
nanette: oh, did i hear my name?
men: please let her go
tommy: please let her go
women: no, no, nanette.
chorus: no, no, no, no!

no, no, nanette,
that’s all i hear!
i get it the whole day through.
no, no, nanette regales my ear
no matter what i may do.
sometime, perhaps,
i’ll have my way
when i am old and turning grey.
but just as yet it’s always
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, nanette!

dance scene

no, no, no. no, no, no. no, no, nanette.
