Alice Blue Gown From Irene, Frankie Masters (#7 in 1940)

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,
But in every shop window I’d primp, passing by;

Then in manner of fashion I’d frown,
and the world seemed to smile all around,
Till it wilted, I wore it,
I’ll always adore it, my sweet little Alice Blue Gown.
