THE ANDREWS SISTERS
"Keep Your Skirts Down, Mary Ann"

[BM:] Mary Ann, Mary Ann!

[AS:] Yes?

[BM:] I'm ashamed your name's McCann

[AS:] What's the matter, mama dear?

[BM:] Mary Ann, come over here!

[BM:] Take it back, the dress you bought.

[AS:] Don't cha know they wear 'em short?

[BM:] You'll get pinched if you get caught.

[AS:] Well, what do ya want from me?

[BM:] Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] Ah

[BM:] Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] Gee

[BM:] Keep your skirts down, Mary Ann!
[AS:] Ah, applesauce!

Gee, I have a lovely dimple on my knee!

[BM:] Don't I know it!

But it wasn't put there for the world to see.

[BM:] Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] What d'ya mean, down?

[BM:] You know what I mean.

When you sit down, if you can.

You would make any man in town a nervous wreck.

[AS:] Why!?

[BM:] Remember you can wear your beads around your neck.

Keep your skirts down!

Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] They're going up!

[BM:] Well keep 'em down, Mary Ann!

[BM:] Mary Ann, Mary Ann,

[AS:] Yes?

[BM:] Girl, you'll never get a man.

[AS:] Oh, I'll grab one, never fear.

[BM:] Mary Ann, just listen here.

Men like the old-fashioned kind.

[AS:] Mama, dear, you're way behind.

[BM:] Sure, you'll make them lose their minds!

[AS:] Oh, what am I gonna do?

[BM:] Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] Ah

[BM:] Keep them way down!

[AS:] Gee whiz!

[BM:] Keep your skirts down, Mary Ann!

[AS:] You make me tired!

I might catch a fellow with my stockin's rolled.

[BM:] All that you will ever catch will be a cold!

[BM:] Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] Ah, what d'ya mean, down?

[BM:] Keep 'em down when you sit down, if you can.

[AS:] Nowadays you must dress like this to win a lad.

[BM:] Mmmm, but I didn't do it, and I won your dad.

[AS:] Well, he was no bargain!

[BM:] Don't get fresh.

Keep your skirts down!

[AS:] They're going up!

[BM:] Well keep 'em down, Mary Ann!
