MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB.
Copyright. 1898, by Wm. B. Gray.
Words and Music by Jos. Tabrar.

My big sister Mary thought she'd be a fairy.
So she made her mind up that she'd like to be the rage.
She went to Tony Pastor-for a part he cast her,
And before she'd scarcely been a fortnight on the stage-

Chorus.
Mary had a little lamb, with hands as white as snow.
And ev'ry place that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go.
If Mary'd say Bah! the lamb would say Ma! now what can I do for thee?
Ah! what would I give if I had a lamb to run about after me?

My big sister Mary thought she'd be contrary.
So one day she met her lamb, then sulked and wouldn't speak.
Along with Cousin Sally, she went and joined the ballet,
And upon my word, before she'd been there half a week- Chorus.

Mary had a nice old lamb, with hair as white as snow.
And ev'ry place that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go. [three.
If Mary's say Bah! the lamb would say Ah! of diamond rings bought her
Oh! what would I give if I had a lamb to buy diamond rings for me.

My big sister Mary loves ideas to vary.
Thought to settle down in life she'd exercise her powers.
She "made up "very pretty, came down to the city,
And before she'd been within its precincts many hours- Chorus.

Mary had another lamb, whose Christian name was Joe,
And ev'ry place that Mary went, poor Joe was sure to go.
The story's the same, now which is to blame? they're married,
have children, three.
Oh! what would I give if I had a lamb, like Joe, to run after me.
