Ladies: A modiste modeste,
She has done her best
To make us look all most exquisitely dressed!
And though you go searching from West to East,
You'll never find such a modeste modiste!
That modeste modiste
Has prepared this feast,
It rests with the Rabbi, the Parson, or Priest,
For when you are married and settled and blessed,
Your husband can pay the modiste modeste.
Solo: Wear alpacas or drills!
With no flounces or frills,
If you're in for a day of exertion,
But suppose you would hark
To the Salon or park,
Wear a something with creamy insertion;
Though a mousseline-de-soie
Is the thing for the Bois,
And is sure to excite admiration,
Still a girl may emerge
In the simplest of serge,
If it's built on a silk foundation.
All: Though a mousseline-de-soie
Is the thing for the Bois,
And is sure to excite admiration,
Still a girl may emerge
In the simplest of serge,
If it's built on a silk foundation.
   
Solo: Now a taffeta plain
Or a satin à laine
Is effective with lace appliqué,
But I'm perfectly sure
In a chiffon velours
I could conquer the world in a day;
And I can't understand
The dismay in the land
At the War Office administration.
For I heard from a man
Who'd inspected the plan,
That it's built on a silk foundation.
Chorus: Oh! she can't understand
The dismay in the land
At the War Office administration.
For she heard from a man
Who'd inspected the plan,
That it's built on a silk foundation.
Built on silk foundation.
