From “Sinbad” (along with “Cleopatra” and “‘N’ Everything”). Only the title of the show and the cover of the music (showing Middle Eastern village with domed houses and minarets against a radiant setting(?) sun) suggest the eastern motif.

I’ve got a brand new sweetie,
Better than the one before,
Oh! she’s got ev’rything
And a little bit more.
I don’t know much about her,
And yet I know a lot
‘Cause what it takes to make me love her
I want to tell you she’s got.

CHORUS:
Does she make ev’rybody stare,
I’ll say she does,
Does she give ’em that “I don’t care”
I’ll say she does
But is she nicer to me
And does she sit on my knee
Does she–I’ll say she does
And does she crave a wedding ‘n’ ev’rything
I’ll say she does,
Was she happy to get the ring
You bet she was
And can she dance, can she twist,
Does she do a lot of things I can’t resist
Does she–I’ll say she does.

It was so hard to get her
She can never get away,
Because I’m watching her
All night and all day,
I’ve always had her picture
I had it in my mind
I always knew what kind I wanted
And she’s exactly the kind.

I’LL SAY SHE DOES
