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 -nt' 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.
