I’ve always been terrible at correctly hearing song lyrics. I’m so glad that there are thousands of websites for just that purpose: finding out correct lyrics.
Unfortunately, when it comes to obscure songs from 1930, it may be impossible to find the lyrics. This is where I need help.
A couple weeks ago, I found this clip online of Clara Bow (as in, the silent film star) singing a song called “True to the Navy” in a film called Paramount on Parade. (From the information I’ve gathered online, it looked like a showcase that the studio assembled to demonstrate how they were using the new “talkie” technology.) Clara was also in a film called True to the Navy, but I guess the song isn’t in the movie, as far as I know.

I MUST KNOW THE LYRICS. I can catch some of them, but not all of them. I know the video quality is less than optimal, but I would be immensely grateful if anyone out there would be able to listen to this whole thing and figure out all the lyrics with some degree of certainty (though I concede that the certainty may not be 100%). Alternately, if anyone can tell me where they’re pretty sure I could find/request the lyrics, I’d also appreciate that.
