MIDI File

Lady Violet: There's a certain little lady who's already known to fame
As Little Mary,
Chorus: As Little Mary,
Lady Violet: Though she may not be romantic, yet it's such a pretty name,
Is Little Mary,
Chorus: Is Little Mary.
Lady Violet: Now I want you all to know her
When I mention her again,
But exactly who she is it isn't easy to explain.
Let me merely say that baby often has a tiny pain
In Little Mary,
Chorus: In Little Mary.
Lady Violet: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
So if baby boy should cry,
And you want to find out why,
Please enquire of Little Mary.
Chorus: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
So if baby boy should cry,
And you want to find out why,
Please enquire of Little Mary.
   
Lady Violet: !'ve a jolly sort of uncle who is rather old and stout,
It's all thro' Mary,
Chorus: Thro' Little Mary,
Lady Violet: And the only girl he takes with him whenever he goes out
Is Little Mary,
Chorus: Is Little Mary.
Lady Violet: Now he doesn't buy her diamonds or silly things like that,
And he never goes and purchases a pretty Paris hat.
But he drives her to a restaurant,
And, Oh! she's getting fat,
Is Little Mary,
Chorus: Is Little Mary.
Lady Violet: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
And my Uncle, with a sigh,
Says he'll live for her or die,
He's so fond of Little Mary.
Chorus: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
And my Uncle, with a sigh,
Says he'll live for her or die,
He's so fond of Little Mary.
   
Lady Violet: Now mamma is very delicate, as anyone can see,
Because of Mary!
Chorus: Of Little Mary!
Lady Violet: And it's not her fault she's given up her coffee and her tea,
It's Little Mary!
Chorus: It's Little Mary!
Lady Violet: When we came across the other day the sun was nice and hot,
And I quite enjoy'd the journey, tho' the steamer roll'd a lot;
But mamma lay down and murmur'd
"Oh, I wish I hadn't got
A Little Mary."
Chorus: A Little Mary.
Lady Violet: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
When you're crossing o'er the Channel,
you must wrap her up in flannel;
Oh, take care of Little Mary.
Chorus: Mary! Mary! Dainty little Mary!
She's a fickle but a fascinating fairy.
When you're crossing o'er the Channel,
you must wrap her up in flannel;
Oh, take care of Little Mary.
