"Mickey" Lyrics

Oh! what a shame they gave you the name of Mickey
Where is the rose that grows in repose like you
Lucky the birds and the bees you'd meet

Lucky the moss and the violet sweet
When they were trod by your bare little feet
There in the morning dew

How can you blame me when I pine
Dearie, to change your name to mine

Mickey, pretty Mickey, with your hair of raven hue
In your smiling so beguiling
There's a bit of Killarney, bit of the Blarney, too
Childhood in the wildwood
Like a mountain flow'r you grew

Pretty Mickey, pretty Mickey
Can you blame anyone for falling in love with you

You had a friend that used to defend and love you
He was a dog, a mutt of a dog, it's true
He used to follow you ev'rywhere
Look in your eyes with a lovable stare

He was a lucky old dog to be there
And he believed it too
This is a promise true from me
"I'll be as faithful to you, as he"

Mickey, pretty Mickey, with your hair of raven hue
In your smiling so beguiling
There's a bit of Killarney, bit of the Blarney, too
Childhood in the wildwood
Like a mountain flow'r you grew

Pretty Mickey, pretty Mickey
Can you blame anyone for falling in love with you
