THE MONTE CARLO GIRLS.
Copyright, 1896, by Vorhauer Bros. & Co.
Words by Fred C. Vorhauer. Music by Will A. Vorhauer.
You see before you now two girls of great renown,
The leaders of society, the wonders of the town.
We're up to ev'ry kind of sport- poker experts, says report:
We call the prince plain "Ed," for short, and you can bet that goes;
And we are mascots both-the girls who took the prize:
The mashers wink their eyes, we're causing great surprise-
Yes, we are single both, it's easy to surmise.
Don't blame us, we're famous, the Monte Carlo girls.
Dashing stunners, winning every bet, their traps for us the swells have set,
But our young hearts are free as yet-when we appear, they cheer;
All hold us dear, we're winners, mild sinners-the Monte Carlo girls.
You never saw our equal, or those who could compare;
Tho' imitations of us sometimes our glories share,
But we are just the real hot stuff, girls who never take a bluff;
We play until they shout "enough "-that's when the bank is broke;
At faro or roulette we never lose a bet,
The warmest ever met, we make the bankers sweat:
We're known throughout the world all comers to offset;
The fearless, the peerless, the Monte Carlo girls.- Chorus.
