Do you remember a song with the lyrics "Hey look me over."?

I think I remember it from the Mitch Miller days when I was a kid.

Update:

Greta - I can't remember the words either. I didn't want to goggle because I want it to come back naturally. Wish me luck

    ^Hey look me over, lend me an ear

    Fresh out of clover, mortgage up to here

    Don’t pass the plate folks, don’t pass the cup

    I figure whenever you’re down and out, the only way is up

    And I’ll be up like a rosebud high on the vine

    Don’t thumb your nose, but take a tip from mine

    I’m a little bit short of the elbow room, so let me get me some

    And look out world, here I come

    (Rep from ^)

    Nobody in the world was ever without a prayer

    How can you win the world if nobody knows you’re there?

    Kid, when you need the crowd, the tickets are hard to sell

    Still, you can lead the crowd if you can get up and yell

    Hey look me over, lend me an ear

    Fresh out of clover, mortgage up to here

    I’m a little bit short of the elbow room, so let me get me some

    And look out world, here me shout world

    And look out world, here I come

    I can't remember the lyrics either but do remember the song and it was in the Mitch Miller days. I do remember the following lines:

    Hey look me over

    Lend me an ear

    Fresh out of clover (not sure about this one)

    Mortgaged up to here

    I'll be anxious to see what your other answers are. Interesting question -- here's a star.

    EDIT: Thank you, Zena e -- now I won't be singing the partial song in my head all day!

    My mom taught us this song when we were little. We sing it now every so often in remembrance of her. There was another one too. Something like Five foot two, eyes of blue, oh but what that gal can do, has anybody seen my gal? Turned up nose, turned down hose, flapper? yes sir, one of those, has anybody seen my gal? Is this by the same band/person?

    My high school band did a half time show for a foot ball game with this theme (1964). Here's a group of men singing the song.

    "lend me an ear"

    I can't remember the 3rd line, but I think it was advertising for....something.
