I once had a gown, it was almost new, 
Oh, the daintiest thing, it was sweet Alice blue, 
With little forget-me-nots placed here and there, 
When I had it on, oh, I walked on the air! 
And it wore, and it wore, and it wore, 
'Til it went, and it wasn't no more. 

In my sweet little Alice blue gown, 
When I first wandered down into town, 
I was so proud inside, 
As I felt every eye, 
And in every shop window I primped, passing by. 

A new manner of fashion I'd found, 
And the world seemed to smile all around. 
'Til it wilted, I wore it, 
I'll always adore it, 
My sweet little Alice blue gown! 

The little silk worms that made silk for that gown, 
Just made that much silk and then crawled in the ground, 
'Cause there never was anything like it before, 
And I don't care to hope there will be any more! 
And it's gone, 'cause it just had to be, 
Still it wears in my memory. 

In my sweet little Alice blue gown, 
When I first wandered down into town, 
I was so proud inside, 
As I felt every eye, 
And in every shop window I primped, passing by. 

A new manner of fashion I'd found, 
And the world seemed to smile all around. 
So it wouldn't be proper 
If made of silk were another, 
My sweet little Alice blue gown!
