Mary Pickford (Used To Eat Roses)

  • Mary Pickford used to eat roses
    Thought that they'd make her beautiful and they did,
    One supposes.

    Douglas Fairbanks, he was so handsome,
    He wore a moustache,
    Must-a had much cash, too,
    Worth a king's ransom,

    Charlie Chaplin, he was invited,
    When these artists became united.
    When these artists became united.

    David Griffith worked as an extra,
    Then as a stagehand,
    Until they let him be
    A director

    Dave was brave, a mover and shaker,
    A true pioneer,
    He seemed to show no fear,
    A real film maker

    Just like Chaplin, he was invited,
    When these artists became united.
    When these artists became united.

    They tied the knot together,
    Groom and bride couldn't hide their pleasure.
    They tried to pick fair weather,
    But love died, didn't last forever.
