From Tin Lizzie to Beautiful Machine Song

September 19, 2021
Henry’s Made a Lady out of Lizzie
The lyrics and cover of the sheet music for “Henry’s Made a Lady out of Lizzie,” Walter O’Keefe’s 1928 song about Ford’s new Model A, a stylish car that replaced the reliable but outdated and unattractive “Tin Lizzie,” the Model T.

Henry’s Made A Lady Out of Lizzie

by Walter O’Keefe   

Have you seen her, Ain’t she great?
She’s something you’ll appreciate,
I’m sure you understand just what I mean,
Ev’ry body, Every where, is falling for her now,
I’m talking bout the new Ford and boy it’s sure a wow!
When you see her, You’ll agree,
She’s just the one for you and me,
She’s everything that any one could ask,
“Sittin’ pretty yes I am, With her I’m always found
You “oughtta” see her Chassis, it’s sure the best around.

Talk of this and talk of that,
Boys you must take off your hat,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Has she plenty, has she much?
Got the “tin” you love to touch,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
They used to park her in a lot,
For that they charged two bits,
But now they charge you nothing,
And you park her at the Ritz.
She once had rattles in her wheel,
But now she’s full of “sex appeal”
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

She’s like all the other vamps,
Pretty shape and lovely lamps,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Since she’s taken on some weight,
Honest, folks, she’s looking great,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Her dashboard has a clock,
That’s a hit with all the Scotch,
A Scotchman saw the clock,
And promptly stopped his watch.
You’ve all heard the Frenchman song,
Fifty million cant be wrong,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

Just a girl who knows her stuff,
Plenty fast but never rough,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Always tidy, always clean,
Faithful as an old Marine,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
She’s not the kind who tries to get
Your money all at once,
She only wants ten dollars down,
The rest in fourteen months,
Good for sister, nice for ma,
Ev’rybody rides but Pa,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

Ev’ry groom and blushing bride,
Now enjoy their buggy ride,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
No one curses, no one swears,
Lizzie never needs repairs,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
She used to kick and jump around,
On ev’ry trolley track,
But now she’s very ladylike,
And never answers back.
She will surely catch your eye,
You know salesmen never lie,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

No more chug chug chug chug-bang!
No more cuss words, no more slang,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Not the noisy flapper kind,
Simply quiet and refined,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
They used to say “We own a car,
It looks like one I mean”
But now they say, “I’ll have you know,
We own a Ford machine”
No more playing Jack and Jill,
No more tumbling down the hill,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

When she’s coming down the street,
All the boys say “Ain’t she sweet”?
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Every man will go for her,
She’s the kind that men prefer,
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!
Why even Thomas Edison,
The wizard that he is,
Could not resist her charms,
And was the first to take out “Liz”
He said “She’s Okay to me,
All she needs is company”
HENRY’S MADE A LADY OUT OF LIZZIE!

The Classics 4

August 29, 2021

Last installment of our trip to Michigan and northern Indiana to visit some iconic car museums. This installment starts out with some pics from our visit to the Early V-8 museum in Auburn Indiana. The first pic is of Darrell and myself in front of Terry Oberer’s donated car. The last few in this installment were taken at the Ford Garage restaurant in Dearborn Michigan. For previous installments of “The Classics” scroll down.

GOAT Model A

August 22, 2021

The below Model A is owned by farmer Scott. He is not in our club but heard about our recent tour to Litchfield Illinois via Route 66 and joined in. I have been in our club for 8 years and have seen my share of “A’s” and this is possibly the best looking one I have seen during those 8 years. I dubbed it a GOAT (means Greatest of All Time for you old farts that do not stay up with the lingo of us hip younger [83] folks).
