I’M A LITTLE PRAIRIE FLOWER (Leslie Sarony, Leslie Holmes) As recorded by: Jack Harris & His Orchestra V. Elsie Carlisle Recorded 25th October 1937 Also recorded by: The Two Leslies Why was I born so beautiful Why was I born so small Why was I born so beautiful Why was I born at all I’m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour Nobody cares to cultivate me So I’m as wild as wild can be (She’s as wild as she can be) My wildness is a thing to which There seems to be no stop Last night I smacked a jelly just to hear the thing go flop So the boys give me bananas And they say I’m rather cute But I’m a little devil When I’m full of passion fruit I’m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour Nobody cares to cultivate me So I’m as wild as wild can be (She’s as wild as she can be) A lot of cows stood in a field And slowly chewed the cud One old cow caught me unawares And nipped me in the bud Oh two cats stood on our garden wall The moon was bright and clear The tabby cat said, “nark it, Tom, You can’t do that there ‘ere.” I’m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour Nobody cares to cultivate me So I’m as wild as wild can be (She’s as wild as she can be) Now Jack and Jill went up the hill And Jill came down quite dizzy But next day Jack went up again And took her sister Lizzie I’m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour Nobody cares to cultivate me So I’m as wild as wild can be (She’s as wild as she can be) My bloom has gone, I’ve run to seed For others I’ll make way So like the good old soldier I must gently fade away I’m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour Nobody cares to cultivate me So I’m as wild as wild can be (She’s as wild as she can be) (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - August 2013)
