Sweet Marie was wise you see She always knew her little book Diamond rings and other things That came her way she always took Winning smile and taking style Took costly presents by the score She'd take each lad for all he had And then she'd take him to the door. Chorus
Tra la la la la she'd always say Tra la la la la in accent day Pretty baby if I let you play wize me You might get too gay and free Tra la la la la My Yankee boy Tra la la la la you bring much joy But if I go out and take ze motor ride Why you might want to pull down ze blind inside And zen you try to get a little fly So I better, Tra la la la la Tra la la la la come ca. Chorus 2
