A smart and stylish girl you see,
Belle of good society,
not too strict but rather free,
Yet as right as right can be.
Never forward, never bold, not too hot, and not to cold
but the very thing I'm told,
that in your arms you'd like to hold.

Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay, Ta-ra-ra Boom-de ay,
Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay, Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay.
Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay, Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay,
Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay, Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay!

A blushing bud of innocence
Papa says at big expense
Old maids say I have no sense
Boys declare, I'm just immense
Before my song I conclude
it is strictly understood
Though fond of fun, I'm never rude
Though not too bad not too good
