Lyrics

VP_007630 Verse 1I just received a letter from my old girl Rose, I understand she's married well and wears the best of clothes, The papers say she mingles in the best society, Her friends no longer call her Rose, It's changed to Rosalie. Although she's burdened down with wealth and fame, A name like Rose should never cause her shame. Chorus 1For any old name, is a wonderful name, If it labels a wonderful girl; Take a plain name like Mary or Jane, If she's nice why You'll love her just the same, A cute name like Mabel may sound rather smart, But a plain name like Sarah stood for Sarah Bernhardt, Which proves that any old name is a wonderful name, If it labels a wonderful girl. Verse 2If you should ever glance through any history, Or in the days America fought for its liberty, You'll find in ev'ry chapter that a woman has won fame, And most of them I'm proud to say had just a simple name, For instance take the name of Betsy Ross, To find a plainer name I'm at a loss.
