Thread Name: Lyr Req: Poor Little Angeline (clean version)
Subject: Lyr Add: POOR LITTLE ANGELINE (W Grosz/J Kennedy)
(Will [Wilhelm] Grosz & Jimmy Kennedy, 1936)

1. She was sweet sixteen, little Angeline,
Always dancing on the village green.
As the boys passed by, you could hear them cry:
"Poor little Angeline!"

2. Oh, her eyes were brown and her hair hung down,
Laddered stockings and an old blue gown;
But she dreamed, we're told, of a lover bold.
Poor little Angeline!

BRIDGE: Then one day her prince came a-riding
And he stopped right by her side.
Very soon she hear him confiding:
"I want to make you my bride."

3. What a pretty scene on the village green
When the prince was wed to Angeline!
Now as his princess, she's a great success.
Poor little Angeline!
