song lyrics to We’ll Build a Bungalow from the classic I Love Lucy episode, The Benefit – as sung by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz

Big enough for two (my honey), yes me and you
And when we’re married, happy we’ll be
Under the bamboo, underneath the bamboo tree

We’ll have an L-A-R-K lark
In the P-A-R-K park
And I’ll K-I-S-S kiss you
In the D-A-R-K dark

(Ricky Ricardo [Desi Arnaz]) – Oh, what’s the use!

And when we’re married
Happy we’ll be
Under the bamboo
Under the bamboo
Under the bamboo tree
