Yiddle On Your Fiddle Play Some Rag Time

Yiddle On Your Fiddle Play Some Rag Time

Year 1909

Words and Music by Irving Berlin

As performed by Sam Stern

Ted Snyder
112 West 38th St.
New York

  First Verse
Everyone was singing, dancing, springing, At a wedding yesterday, Yiddle on his fiddle played some ragtime, And Sadie heard him play. She jumped up and looked him in the eyes, Yiddle swelled his chest way out, Everyone was taken by surprise, When they heard Sadie shout.

Second Verse
At the supper table Saide thought, Yiddle must have flew the coop; She looked all around, but could not find him, 'Till she heard him drinking soup, Saide waited till they served the fish, Then she jumped upon the flor, Put a quarter right on Yiddle's dish, And yelled to him once more.

Chorus
Yiddle in the middle of your fiddle, play some ragtime, Get busy, I'm dizzy, I'm feeling two years young, Mine ragtime baby, if you'll maybe play for Sadie, Some more ragtime; Yiddle, don't you stop, if you do, I'll drop, For I just can't make my eyes shut up, Yiddle on your fiddle, play some ragtime.

Indiana

Indiana

Year 1917

Words by Ballard MacDonald
Music by James F. Hanley

Shapiro Bernstein and Co.
224 West 47th Street
New York

  First Verse
I have always been a wand'rer Over land and sea, Yet a moonbeam on the water Casts a spell o'er me, A vision fair I see, Again I seem to be:

Second Verse
Fancy paints on mem'rys canvas Scenes that we hold dear, We recall them in days after, Clearly they appear, And often times I see A scence that's dear to me:

Chorus
Back home again in Indiana, and it seems that I can see the gleaming candle light still shining bright thru the sycamores for me, the new mown hay sends all its fragrance from the fields I used to roam, when I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash, then I long for my Indiana home.

Come Out Of The Kitchen Mary Ann

Come Out Of The Kitchen Mary Ann

Year 1917

By James Kendis and Charles Bayha

The Kendis Music Pub. Co.
145 W. 45th St.
New York City

  First Verse
Mary Ann was a picture fan But she worked hard all day Washing dishes she had wishes to star in a photo play. One day Mary fell asleep it seems Mary had some pretty dreams, She dreamt a fairy came to her that day And she thought she heard it say.

Second Verse
In her dreams, Mary posed it seems within a burning barn And from out the smoke Her brave hero spoke, I'll save you from all harm, Her boss caught her sleeping, yelled "Awake", "What's the idea burning up my steak" She lost her job and now sleeps all day Just to hear somebody say.

Chorus
Come out of the kitchen Mary darlin' Come out of the kitchen Mary Ann Why waste your time cooking Irish stew When Mary Pickford and Theda Bara will step aside for you How would you like to be starred with Charlie Chaplin Your picture pasted on each garbage can? It's a cinch there's nothing to do Just let him kick you black and blue Come out of the kitchen Mary Ann.

Chorus 2
Come out of the kitchen Mary darlin' Come out of the kitchen Mary Ann Girls like you were never meant to work, WHy all you need is a dif'rent face and you'd look like Billie Burke, How would you like to be kissed by Douglas Fairbanks Have Francis Bushman love you as he can? Dressed up like Valeska Suratt and Imagine being paid for that Come out of the kitchen Mary Ann.
