Refrain: In my sweet little Alice blue gown,
When I first wandered down into town
I was both proud and shy, as I felt ev’ry eye,
But in ev’ry shop window I’d primp, passing by.
Then in manner of fashion I’d frown
And the world seemed to smile all around.
Till it wilted I wore it, I’ll always adore it,
My sweet little Alice blue gown.”
