Anna Marie, the girl I adore,
Anna Marie, the girl I live for.
I'd travel the world, over land and sea,
I'd never find one like you, Anna Marie.

Am01


We went to the open air theatr...
One summer's night in the park.
Soon, I had to excuse myself,
And I wandered off in the dark.
I got back to my seat next to her,
I'd not been gone more than a minute.
I said, "How was the show?"
She said, "You ought to know...
"You silly great fool, you were in it."

Oh, but Anna Marie, the girl I adore,
Anna Marie, the girl I live for.
I'd travel the world over land and sea,
I'd never find one like you, Anna Marie.

She invited me around for my birthday...
To show me just how she could cook.
She made some flakey pastry,
It tasted like a wet book.
But she had to admit that the cake that I bought...
Really wasn't too bad.
She said she'd light the twenty-eight candles...
That were on the slice that she had.

Oh, but Anna Marie, the girl I adore,
Anna Marie, the girl I live for.
I'd travel the world, over land and sea,
I'd never find one like you, Anna Marie.

She said, "Now, we're alone lets get cozy,
"I'll put something more comfortable on."
And I sat there biting my fingernails...
For the full half an hour she was gone.
The door burst open she stood there...
With all of my mates from the docks,
And they all sang Happy Birthday to You,
And all I had on was my socks.

Oh, but Anna Marie, the girl I adore,
Anna Marie, the girl I live for.
I'd travel the world over land and sea,
I'd never find one like you, Anna Marie....
