POOR PIERROT.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
As Sung in "The Gaiety Girl"

Mesdames, Messieurs, je suis Pierrot,
I'm nothing of the sort, you know;
But Pagliacci's all the rnge,
And Pierrot's dress suits middle age.
I bought it from a swell costoomier,
Who said he'd really nothing roomier,
And so I sing a tale of woe-
Et pouiquoi? Moi, je suis Pierrot.
They've torn me away from my gal, gal, gal,
In her muslin and gauzy fal lal, lal, lal.
My Columbine sweet, while I dance in the street
On the day of the gay carnival, val, Val,
On the day of the gay carnival.
They've torn him away from his gal, gal, gal.
In her muslin And gauzy fal lal, lal, lal,
His Columbine sweet, while he sings in the street
On the day of the gay carnival, vol, val.

The stories told of poor Pierrot
Are such rs cause the tears to flow;
They paint his love for Columbine,
A graceful girl of twelve stone nine;
They show the pains that rack his cranium.
When she swears harlequin's geranium;
The thing's absurd, he knows her age,
And what she looks like off the stage!
He's probably sick of his gal, gal, gal,
In that muslin and gauzy fal lal, lal, lal.
My Columbine had, and he's only too glad
Of a day at the gay carnival, val, val,
Of a day at the gay Carnival.
He's probably sick of his gal, gal, gal.
In that muslin and gauzy fal lal, lal, lal,
His Columbine bad, and he's only too glad
Of a day at the gay carnival, val, val.

Beneath her window sits Pierrot,
Locked out and starving in the snow;
All nonsense, if he's lost his keys
He has his meals at A-B-C's.
His vows are often told in ballet, an'
At Covent Garden in Italian;
He's parodied at music halls,
Reigns supreme at the fancy halls.
Pierrot il adore toutes les gals, gals, gals,
Sa Jeannes, son Elise, et sa Sal, Sal, Sal:
Il aime dans un way, entierement francaise,
Sur le jour choise pour carnival, val, val,
Sur le your choise pour carnival.
Pierrot il adore toutes les gals, gals, gals,
Sa Jeannes, son Elise, et sa Sal, Sal, Sal:
Il aime dans un way, entierement francaise,
Sur le jour choise pour carnival, val, val.
