Goin' Co'tin' lyrics

MILLY: Goin' co'tin', goin' co'tin',
Oh, it sets your senses in a whirl.
Goin' co'tin', goin' co'tin',
Doodin' up to go and see your girl.
Oh, it's fun to hunt and shoot a gun,
Or to catch a rabbit on the run.
But you'll find it's twice as sportin',
Goin' co'tin'.

Now, there's lots of things you've gotta know.
Be sure the parlor light is low.
You sidle up and squeeze her hand,
Let me tell you fellas that it's grand.
You hem and haw - a little while,
She gives you kinda - half a smile,
You cuddle up - she moves away
Then the strategy comes into play.

Goin' co'tin', goin' co'tin',
If you find it hard to break the ice.
Goin' co'tin', goin' co'tin',
Here's a little feminine advice.
Roll your eyes and heave a little sigh.
Grunt and groan like you're about to die.
That is what's known as emotin'.
Goin' co'tin'.

DANIEL: Ah, how about sparkin'?
MILLY: Parlor's darkin'?
DANIEL: Yeah.
MILLY: And you're longin' for a fond embrace?
DANIEL: A ha.
GIDEON: What about pettin'?
EPHRAIM: And sofa-settin'?
CALEB: Suppose she ups and slaps your face?
FRANK: Yeah.
MILLY: Just remember, blessed are the meek,
Don't forget to turn the other cheek.
Pretty soon you'll both be larkin',
Goin' sparkin'.

MILLY: Goin' dancin',
BROTHERS: Goin' dancin' !
MILLY: At a fancy ball or minuet.
Goin' dancin',
You'll impress her with your etiquette.
EPHRAIM: You mean - men are learnin'
 how to dance?
MILLY: A ha, yes, it came direct
 from Paris, France.
It will help with your romancin'.
Goin' dancin'.

GIDEON: Keep your dancin'!
FRANK: And huntin'!
DANIEL and EPHRAIM: And shootin'!
BENJAMIN, FRANK, CALEB and DANIEL:
 And fightin'!
ALL SIX BROTHERS: And trappin'!
MILLY and BROTHERS: 'Cos we're goin' co'tin'.
