WHEN I TAKE MY MORNING PROMENADE (A.J. Mills / Bennett Scott) Marie Lloyd - c.1908 Since Mother Eve in the Garden long ago Started the fashion, fashion's been a passion Eve wore a costume we might describe as brief Still every season brought its change of leaf. She'd stare if she could come to town Oh! what would Mother Eve think of my new Parisian gown? When I take my morning promenade Quite a fashion card, on the Promenade Oh! I don't mind nice boys staring hard If it satisfies their desire Do you think my dress is a little bit Just a little bit..... Well not too much of it, Though it shows my shape just a little bit That's the little bit the boys admire Fancy the girls in the prehistoric days Each wore a bearskin covering her fair skin, Lately Salome has charmed us to be sure Wearing some rows of beads and not much more Fancy my dressing like that, too The 'Daily Mirror' man would surely want an interview When I take my morning promenade Quite a fashion card, on the Promenade Oh! I don't mind nice boys staring hard If it satisfies their desire Do you think my dress is a little bit Just a little bit..... Well not too much of it Though it shows my shape just a little bit That's the little bit the boys admire I've heard my Grandmother wore the crinoline Then came the bussle, Oh! it was a tussle Women were tied up and loaded up with dress Now, fashion plates decree we must wear less. Each year our costume grows more brief I wonder when we'll get back to the good old fashioned leaf? When I take my morning promenade Quite a fashion card, on the Promenade Oh! I don't mind nice boys staring hard If it satisfies their desire Do you think my dress is a little bit Just a little bit..... Well not too much of it Though it shows my shape just a little bit That's the little bit the boys admire
