MIDI File

Mrs. Pineapple: The à la girl is an English girl
With lots of à la ways;
She gets her frocks at Brixton,
But they're fashioned à la Jays.
She's awfully fond of diamonds, and
She wears them all she can;
Though just between ourselves they're made
A la Parisian.
Chorus: Oh, the à la girl is a knowing girl,
With heaps of à la talk;
And when she strolls down Regent Street,
She's got an à la walk.
There's an à la twinkle in her eye,
She wears an à la curl,
And she loves a dash
With an à la mash,
Does the à la English girl.
Oh, the à la girl is a knowing girl,
With heaps of à la talk;
And when she strolls down Regent Street,
She's got an à la walk.
There's an à la twinkle in her eye,
She wears an à la curl,
And she loves a dash
With an à la mash,
Does the à la English girl.
   
Mrs. Pineapple: The à la girl is a Yankee girl,
You bet she knows her way;
And you will find no flies on her,
A la the U. S. A.
She goes to London ev'ry year;
And gracious, how she'll dress!
She does the thing in swagger form
A la the Hotel Cec.
Chorus: Oh, the à la girl is a knowing girl,
For popper's made his pile;
She's lots of lovers way at home
But they are not her style.
And though old England's mighty slow
It sets her heart a-whirl;
And she comes to get a coronet
Does the à la Yankee girl.
Oh, the à la girl is a knowing girl,
For popper's made his pile;
She's lots of lovers way at home
But they are not her style.
And though old England's mighty slow
It sets her heart a-whirl;
And she comes to get a coronet
Does the à la Yankee girl.
   
Mrs. Pineapple: The à la girl is a Scottish girl,
A braw wee bonnie thing,
She loves to kick her tootsies up
A la the Highland fling.
She awfu' fond of Bobbie Burns
And cakes and porridge too;
And she din nae mind a wee bit sup
A la Johnnie Dew!
Chorus: The à la girl is a sporting girl,
She loves the breezy moor;
And she adores a game of golf
A la A. J. Balfour.
Her martial spirit rises when
She hears the bagpipes skirl;
She's a de'il in a fecht,
and she's a' recht the necht
The à la Scottish girl.
The à la girl is a sporting girl,
She loves the breezy moor;
And she adores a game of golf
A la A. J. Balfour.
Her martial spirit rises when
She hears the bagpipes skirl;
She's a de'il in a fecht,
and she's a' recht the necht
The à la Scottish girl.
   
Mrs. Pineapple: The à la girl is a Paree girl,
The smartest girl on earth;
Her hats are à la Rue de la Piax,
Her dresses à la Worth.
She dines each ev'ning à la carte
A swagger girl is she;
She paints her cheeks and dyes her hair,
La charmant Belle Paree.
Chorus: The à la girl is a lively girl,
Without a thought or care;
She loves the gay and merry life
A la Folies Bergere.
And all the men around her little
Finger she will twirl;
With her "C'est comme ça, comprenez pas,"
The à la Paree girl.
The à la girl is a lively girl,
Without a thought or care;
She loves the gay and merry life
A la Folies Bergere.
And all the men around her little
Finger she will twirl;
With her "C'est comme ça, comprenez pas,"
The à la Paree girl.
