"Alice Blue Gown" as written by Gus Kahn and Isham Jones....
[I = She]

Verse

I ONCE HAD A GOWN IT WAS AL-MOST NEW, OH, THE DAIN-TI-EST
THING, IT WAS SWEET A-LICE BLUE; WITH LIT-TLE FOR-GET-ME-NOTS
PLACED HERE AND THERE, WHEN I HAD IT ON, I WALKED ON THE AIR,
AND IT WORE, AND IT WORE, AND IT WORE, TILL IT WENT AND IT
WAS-N'T NO MORE.

Chorus

IN MY SWEET LIT-TLE A-LICE BLUE GOWN,.......
WHEN I FIRST WAN-DERED DOWN IN TO TOWN,.........
I WAS BOTH PROUD AND SHY, AS I FELT EV'-RY EYE, BUT IN EV'-RY SHOP
WIN-DOW
I'D PRIMP, PASS-ING BY;
THEN IN MAN-NER OF FASH-ION I'D FROWN............
AND THE WORLD SEEM'D TO SMILE ALL A-ROUND,.........
TILL IT WILT-ED I WORE IT, I'LL AL-WAYS A-DORE IT, MY SWEET LIT-TLE
A-LICE BLUE GOWN
