music by Harold Arlen (left)
lyric by E.Y. "Yip" Harburg (right)

Evelina, won't ya ever take a shine to that moon?
Evelina, ain't ya bothered by the bobolink's tune?
Tell me, tell me how long ya gonna keep delayin' the day,
Evelina, won't ya pay a little mind to me soon?

Wake up! Wake up!
The earth is fair, the fruit is fine but what's the use of smellin' watermelon
Clingin' to another fella's vine?
Evelina, won't ya roll off that vine an' be mine?
