Note: This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
I once had a gown it was almost new,
Oh, the daintiest thing, it was sweet Alice Blue,
With little forgetmenots 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 wasnt' no more.
In my sweet little Alice Blue Gown,
When I first wandered down in to 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 seem'd to smile all around,
Till it wilted I wore it, I'll always adore it,
My sweet little Alice Blue Gown.
