Mr. President ~ original album circa 1962

I'm Gonna Get Him ~ Sandy Stewart with Perry Como intro
When you were a kid 
and you wanted a "doll" 
you got it!
Don't ask how you did, 
but when you were a kid 
and you wanted a "doll" 
you got it!
You carefully laid out a plan, 
when you were a kid 
'twas a doll . . .
 
And now it's a man!
 
I'm gonna get em! 
I'm gonna get em! 
Instead of givin' up 
an' throwin' in the towel 
I'm gonna keep on fightin' 
fair or fowl 
until I get em! 
I'm gonna em! 
 
I'm gonna wear my jewels 
an' my ermine wrap 
an' if I have to drop my shoulder strap
I'm gonna get em! 
I'm gonna em! 
 
An' when I've got him 
where I think he otta be . . . 
I'm gonna love em, love em
My mission in life will be to "love em" 
until he loves me!
 
I'm gonna get em! 
Hmm, I'm gonna get em!
I'll back him in a corner 
'till he squirms an' twists 
an' if I must put handcuffs 
on his wrists 
I'm gonna get em! 
I'm gonna get em! 
 
He'll know the facts of life 
an' when he understands 
I'll put a "shotgun" in my father's hands 
an' that'll get em!
I'm gonna em! 
 
An' when I've got him 
where I think he otta be . . .
I'm gonna hug em, hug em
I'll hug em and if I have to slug em
he's gonna love, he's gonna love
he's gonna love me!
