SHE HAS A LITTLE DIMPLE ON HER CHIN (McConnell / Osborn / Irving Bibo) Ernest Hare & Billy Jones - 1929 Jack Kaufman - 1929 Eddie Walters - 1929 There's a maiden in our town By the name of Mary Brown She has a little dimple on her chin All the fellows in our town Follow Mary all around Because she has a dimple on her chin Mary hasn't pretty clothes And she hasn't silken hose She has a little dimple on her chin She has freckles on her nose Still she has a lot of beaus Because she has a dimple on her chin (SPOKEN) HARE: What do you say to a little dance, William? (SPOKEN) JONES: It's a ripping idea. At her house each night at nine All the fellows wait in line To see the little dimple on her chin When they call, they hang about Till her Father kicks them out Because she has a dimple on her chin She went to a beauty place Where they lifted up her face And how they lifted it, it was a sin Now you look at her and see Where the forehead used to be The pretty little dimple on her chin (SPOKEN) HARE: Now we'll dance with our hats off. (SPOKEN) JONES: Yes, it's warm in here. Once she wasn't feeling good So she went to Doctor Woods And asked him what was wrong when she went in He examined her, then he Said to her, "All that I see A pimple in the dimple on your chin" Ah, poor Mary is a fright When she goes to bed at night Her hair is false and so is ev'ry limb She removes her wooden leg Hangs her teeth upon a peg But she don't remove the dimple on her chin (SPOKEN) JONES: Ah, Sailor's Hornpipe (SPOKEN) HARE: With our hats on. Heave ho! At a party years ago Ev'rybody that you know Recited soulfully of Gunga Din But those classics are passe For the folks recite today She has a little dimple on her chin Scientists from near and far Came by aeroplane and car To study Mary's dimple on her chin Then they made a big report It was nothing but a wart And not a little dimple on her chin (SPOKEN) HARE: Now on one foot. (SPOKEN) JONES: Yes, sir. Once to Washington she went And in Congress ev'ry gent Was staring at the dimple on her chin Speeches stopped upon the floor Senators began to roar She had a little dimple on her chin Then the Speaker got real mad Yelled, "Have order, this is bad Take the floor now, Senator O'Flynn" But the Senator turned red "Mister Speaker, Sir", he said "She has a little dimple on her chin" (SPOKEN) BOTH: Up socks. Though it doesn't mean a thing We could sing and sing and sing About the little dimple on her chin But we're running out of rhyme So we'll sing another time About the little dimple on her F-A-C-E, chin!
