Johnny O'Connor bought an automobile,
He took his sweet-heart for a ride one Sunday,
Johnny was togged up in his best Sunday clothes,
She nestled close to his side
Things went just dandy till they got down the road,
Then something happened to the old machinery,
That engine got his goat, off went his hat and coat,
Everything needed repairs.

He had to get under, get out and get under
To fix his little machine,
He was just dying to cuddle his queen,
But every minute, when he'd begin it,
He'd have to get under, get out and get under,
Then he'd get back at the wheel
A dozen times they'd start to hug and kiss
And then the darned old engine it would miss
And then he'd have to get under, get out and get under,
To fix up his automobile.

Millionaire Wilson said to Johnny one day,
Your little sweetheart don't appreciate you,
I have a daughter who I know you'd just love,
She likes to ride everyday,
Johnny had visions of a million in gold,
He took her riding in his little auto,
But every time that he went to say "Marry me,"
'Twas the old story again

He'd have to get under, get out and get under
To fix his little machine,
He was just dying to cuddle his queen,
But every minute, when he'd begin it,
He'd have to get under, get out and get under,
Then he'd get back at the wheel
Every time he'd try to steal a kiss
It seemed a darned old spark plug, it would miss
And then he'd have to get under, get out and get under,
To fix up his automobile.

He'd have to get under, get out and get under
To fix his little machine,
He was just dying to cuddle his queen,
But every minute, when he'd begin it,
He'd have to get under, get out and get under,
Then he'd get back at the wheel
It seems that once she sat down on his knee
And then he lost control, ran right up a tree
And then he'd have to get under, get out and get under,
To fix up his automobile.
