firts of all your Eb chord is actually a D# chord because you take a C Major and bar it and move down one fret

I think, they sing pretty girl, not little girl, but the chords are good work

No they are singing "Show me the way to the next little girl"
Did you kno this song was a remake. It was more of an opera way back in the 20's I believe. The original is "Show us the way to the next little dollar" and "Show us the way to the next pretty boy" By those words they are pretty much *****s I believe. All the other lyrics are jus the same =)
