Poor Johnny’s heart went pitty, pitty pat
Somewhere in sunny France
He met a girl by chance with ze naughty naughty glance,
She looked just like a kitty kitty cat,
She loved to dance and play,
Tho’ he learned no French when he left the trench,
He knew well enough to say:
Wee Wee Marie, will you do zis for me
Wee Wee Marie, then I’ll do zat for you,
I love your eyes they make me feel so spoony,
You’ll drive me loony, you’re teasing me,
Why can’t we parley vous like other sweethearts do,
I want a kiss or two from Ma Cherie,
Wee Wee Marie, if you’ll do zis for me
Then I’ll do zat for you,
Wee Wee Marie,
Wee Wee Marie.
They walked a long the boule boulevard,
He whispered “You for me,
Some day in gay Paree
I will make you marry me,”
Just then a bunch of bully bully boys,
Threw kisses on the sly,
Marie got wise when they rolled their eyes,
They sang as they passed her by.
