Nev - er saw you look quite so pret - ty be -fore,
Nev - er saw you dressed quite so love - ly, what's more,
I could hard - ly wait to keep our date this love - ly East -er morn -ing,
And my heart beat fast as I came through the door for:
 
Chorus:
In your East - er bon - net,  With all the frills up - on it,
You'll be the grand - est la - dy in the East - er Par - ade.
I'll be all in clov - er,  And when they look you ov - er,
I'll be the proud - est fel - low in the East - er Par - ade.
On the Av - e - nue,  Fifth Av - e - nue,
The pho - to - graph - ers will snap us,  And you'll find that you're In the ro - to - gra - vure.
Oh, I could write a son - net,  A - bout your East - er bon - net,
And of the girl I'm tak - ing to the East - er Par - ade.
