Miss Olivette, the "Star" soubrette, arrived the other day
From gay "Paree" with all her "Frenchy" style:
She's all the rage now on the stage, and all the people say
A fascinating Miss, with winning smile.
With a very, very naughty wink she lifts her skirt so fine,
And shows her dainty foot and ankle small;
A dashing, little creature, with a kick that is a feature,
She's a big sensation I can tell you all.
Have you ever, ever, ever seen Miss Olivette;
Have you ever, ever, ever seen this gay soubrette;
As clever as they make them, she's the people's pet;
This captivating girl has caught the town;
The swellest on the "Boulevard," they all declare;
At her stylish gowns and pretty foot the chappies stare;
When to flirt with her they try, she just smiles and winks her eye,
She's the gayest little girl in town.
The swagger set say Olivette is just the proper thing,
The chappies say the one they all adore;
She's the wined and dined by all the swells-oh, you should hear her sing;
She has invitations by the score.
She's right in line at any time for sport of any sort,
At the races she can pick a winner, too;
She's always strictly "in it," you can't lose her for a minute,
Oh, Olivette, there's only one, that's you.- Chorus.
