Just an Old Fashioned Girl

Album: Just an Old Fashioned Girl (1956)
  • I'm just an old fashioned girl with an old fashioned mind
    Not sophisticated, I'm the plain and simple kind
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire

    I'd like a plain simple car, a cerise Cadillac
    Long enough to have a bowling alley in the back
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire

    I'll stay weaving at my loom
    Be no trouble to my groom
    If he'll keep the piles of money mounting
    In our cottage there will be
    A soundproof nursery
    Not to wake the baby while I'm counting

    I like the old fashioned flowers, violets are for me
    Have them made in diamonds by the man at Tiffany
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire

    I'm just a pilgrim at heart, oh so pure and genteel
    Catch me in Las Vegas while I'm at the spinning wheel!
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire

    I'll ask for such simple things when my birthday occurs
    Two apartment buildings that are labeled "Hers and Hers"
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire

    I like Chopin and Bizet
    And the songs of yesterday
    String quartets and Polynesian carols
    But the music that excels
    Is the sound of oil wells
    As they slurp, slurp, slurp into the barrels

    My little home will be quaint as an old parasol
    And instead of carpets I'll have money wall to wall
    I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
    And an old fashioned millionaire Writer/s: MARVE A FISHER
