⦿ Let’s Rub Noses ~ Porky Pig . . . . (Polar Pals) 1939

‘Let’s Rub Noses Like the Eskimoses’

There’s a nice land known as Iceland, living there is swell,
That’s where those frozen people dwell.

One supposes rubbing noses saves them lots of heat
Boy, how they’re making both ends meet!

Oh, let’s rub noses like the Eskimoses,
That’s a northern custom turns winter into spring
Each polar guy’s a hero when it’s under zero
You can always trust them to do that certain thing
When the band is playing Nola at the Polar Ball
You won’t find a blue schnozola anywhere at all
Let’s rub noses like the Eskimoses
Don’t you know that’s Eskimo for “I love you”?
