Verse:
I have an ear for mu - sic,  And I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pret - ty girl - ie,  With each pret - ty tune that's played.
They go to - geth - er, like sun - ny weath - er,  Goes with the month of May.
I've stu - died girls and mu - sic,  So I'm qual - i - fied to say:
 
Chorus:
A pret - ty girl is like a mel - o - dy,
That haunts you night and day.
Just like the strain of a haunt - ing re - frain,
She'll start up - on a mar - a - thon, And run a - round your brain,
You can't es - cape she's in your mem - o - ry,
By morn - ing, night and noon,
She will leave you and then come back a - gain,
A pret - ty girl is just like a pret - ty tune.
