    Lyrics

    I once had a gown, it was almost new
    Oh, the daintiest thing, it was sweet Alice blue
    With little forget-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
    'Til it went, and it wasn't no more

    In my sweet little Alice blue gown
    When I first wandered down into town
    I was both proud and shy, as I felt every eye
    And in every shop window I primped passing by
    Then in manner of fashion, I'd frown
    And the world seemed to smile all around
    'Til it wilted, I wore it, I'll always adore it
    My sweet little Alice blue gown

    The little silk worms that made silk for that gown
    Just made that much silk and then crawled in the ground
    For there never was anything like it before
    And I don't dare to hope there will be any more
    But it's gone, 'cause it just had to be
    Still it wears in my memory

    In my sweet little Alice blue gown
    When I first wandered down into town
    I was both proud and so shy, as I felt every eye
    And in every shop window I primped passing by
    Then in manner of fashion, I'd frown
    And the world seemed to smile all around
    So it wouldn't be proper if made of silk were another
    My sweet little Alice blue gown
