“A Fellow Needs A Girl” LYRICS

Dr. Taylor:
A fellow needs a girl
To sit by his side
At the end of a weary day,
To sit by his side
And listen to him talk
And agree with the things he’ll say.

A fellow needs a girl
To hold in his arms
When the rest of his world goes wrong,
To hold in his arms
And know that she believes
That her fellow is wise and strong.

When things go right
And his job’s well done,
He wants to share
The prize he’s won.
If no one shares,
And no one cares,
Where’s the fun
Of a job well done
Or a prize you’ve won?

A fellow needs a home
His own kind of home,
But to make his dream come true,
A fellow needs a girl,
His own kind of girl—
My kind of girl is you.

Marjorie:
My fellow needs a girl
To sit by his side
At the end of a weary day,
So I sit by his side
And listen to him talk
And agree with the things he’ll say.

My fellow needs a girl
To hold in his arms
When the rest of the world goes wrong,
To hold in his arms
And know that she believes
That her fellow is wise and strong.

When things go right
And his job’s well done,
He wants to share
The prize he’s won,
If no one shares,
And no one cares,
Where’s the fun
Of a job well done?

Dr. Taylor:
Or a prize you’ve won?

Marjorie:
My fellow needs a home,
His own kind of home,
But to make his dreams come true—

Dr. Taylor:
A fellow needs to love—

Marjorie:
His one only love—

Both:
My only love is you.
