LEG OF NATIONS, THE

Irving Berlin
Irving Berlin
Ziegfeld Follies
Written for the Ziegfeld Follies of 1920 as the League of Nations treaty was being debated in Washington.

I’d like to form a League of Nations
Without any obligations
Composed of girls, and each a beautiful one
‘Twould be a very novel treaty
represented by a sweetie
From each and ev’ry country under the sun
Don’t think I’m asking for your kind applause
But I think a Yankee girl should be its president
Because

CHORUS:
Her eyes are little bit brighter
Her teeth are a little bit whiter
She’s just a bit more lively
Which makes her more attractive
The rest are not as active
At a party or a ball
Her smile is a little bit sweeter
Her style is a little bit neater
And from her toes up to her knees
The ankle gazer sees
She’s
Got the Leg of Nations
My girl of the U.S.A.
