The House With The Whitewashed Gable
(Neil Levinson - new lyrics by Kevin Dunne)
Recorded by Paul & The Deep Set, also by Joe Dolan & The Drifters

 

 

Dum-de-dum, dum-de-dum-de-dum,
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum-dum-dum

I'm in love with the girl who lives
In the house with the whitewashed gable
And every time she looks my way
My poor heart seems to say:
I'm in love with the girl who lives
In the house with the whitewashed gable
And I won't rest until she marries me.

Dum-de-dum, dum-de-dum-de-dum,
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum-dum-dum

So I knocked on the door of the pretty little house
Just as soon as I was able
And Mary Lou said 'Hi' to me,
Now I'm as happy as I can be
'Cause I'm in love with the girl who lives
In the house with the whitewashed gable

Her eyes are baby blue
And her hair's so pretty too,
If she'd just be my girl
It would be a wonderful world for me

'Cause I'm in love with the girl who lives
In the house with the whitewashed gable
And I won't rest until she marries -
She just said she'd marry me!
(Original recording as 221 East Maple by Ronnie Dante, 1966)
