Jeepers Creepers

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Harry Warren

The song was publishe 1938.

The music was written by Harry Warren and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer,
for the 1938 Warner Brothers movie Going Places.
It was premiered by Louis Armstrong and has since been covered
by many other artists.

This song was featured in the 1938 film Going Places starring Dick Powell,
Anita Louise and Ronald Reagan.
Louis Armstrong appears in the part of Gabriel,
the trainer of a race horse named Jeepers Creepers.
Jeepers Creepers is a very wild horse and can only be soothed enough
to let someone ride him when Gabriel plays the song
"Jeepers Creepers" on his trumpet or sings it to him.
Gabriel wrote the song specifically for the horse.
(The phrase "jeepers creepers", a slang expression and minced oath euphemism
for Jesus Christ, predates both the song and film.)

Jeepers, creepers....where'd ya get them peepers
Jeepers, creepers...where'd ya get those eyes
Gosh oh, git'd they get so lit up
Gosh oh, gee'd they get that size

Golly gee...when you turn them heaters on
Woe is to put my cheaters on

Jeepers, creepers....where'd ya get them peepers
Oh, those they hypnotize

Jeepers, creepers....where'd ya get them peepers
Oh, those they hypnotize
Where did ya get those
Golly where'd ya get those
Where did ya get them there eyes
