Words by Max F. Ihmsen. Music by George Rosey.

Extremely fascinating is this creature,
So very stylish, but demure and shy;
The dude lets, for her smiles, do all beseech her,
But she wouldn't blink her eye;
Her Pa and Ma yon'd call them wildly wealthy;
To flirt she really never would be seen;
A little fun, provided it is stealthy,
Is liked by this little queen.

She's a Fifth Avenue belle, a lady without flaw;
From her manner, you can tell her Mamma's word Is law;
She likes a quiet supper-some "fizz," because it's swell,
But nothing that's improper for this Fifth Avenue belle.

She often goes to see the great performers-
The drama is a thing on which she'll dote;
You'd think she had been reared among reformers,
When her child-like look you note;
But when the play's appropriately ended,
She'll go with Cholly to a pleasant place,
Where oysters and cock-tails are deftly tendered,
They say she can set the pace.- Chorus.

But on a coaching trip, oh, what a bnmmer;
With wine and lunch, that spanking coach and four;
I think one bird like her would make a summer
Of delicious fan galore;
Do you think she could perform a gay fandango,
Provided no observers were around?
Could you hug her, and then not arouse her anger?
Well, of coarse, that is to be found.-Chorus.
