The Sewing Machine (song)

Opening scene from a 40s musical starring Betty Hutton.

Hutton’s most notable film role was the part of Annie Oakley in the 1950 musical of “Annie Get Your Gun.” One of her best known songs, “Blow a Fuse” (later renamed “It’s Oh So Quiet”), was covered by Icelandic artist, Bjork (Björk)

This song appears on Betty Hutton’s CD albums, “Spotlight on Betty Hutton” and “Satin & Spurs”.

Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
A girl’s best friend
If I didn’t have my sewing machine
I’d a come to no good end
But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
And wheel the wheel by day
So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to play

Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
A friend in need
If I didn’t having my sewing machine
A wicked life I’d lead
But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
And dream about romance
So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to dance

Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
Me pride and joy
If I didn’t having me sewing machine
I’d a married James McCoy
But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
And that’s the end of Jim
‘Cause by night I get so weary I don’t even look good to him
