“In My Own Little Corner”
I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse When I hear a command I obey But I know of a spot in my house Where no one can stand in my way In my own little corner In my own little chair I can be whatever I want to be On the wing of my fancy I can fly anywhere And the world will open its arms to me I'm a young Norwegian princess or a milkmaid I'm the greatest prima donna in Milan I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made By her own flock of silkworms in Japan! I'm a girl men go mad for, love's a game I can play With a cool and confident kind of air Just as long as I stay In my own little corner All alone In my own Little chair I can be whatever I want to be I'm a thief in Calcutta I'm a queen in Peru I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea I'm a huntress on an African safari (It's a dangerous kind type sport and yet it's fun) In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry And I find I forgot to bring my gun! I am lost in the jungle All alone and unarmed When I meet a lioness in her lair! Then I'm glad to be back In my own little corner All alone In my own Little chair
