Marian the Librarian Lyrics
Marian the Librarian Song Lyrics
What can I say, my dear, to catch your ear I love you madly, madly
Marian Heaven help us if the library caught on fire
And the Volunteer Hose Brigademen
Had to whisper the news to Marian...
What can I say, my dear, to make it clear I need you badly, badly,
Marian If I stumbled and I busted my what-you-may-call-it
I could lie on your floor unnoticed
'Till my body had turned to carrion...Madam Librarian.
Now in the moonlight, a man could sing it In the moonlight
And a fellow would know that his darling
Had heard ev'ry word of his song With the moonlight helping along.
But when I try in here to tell you, dear
I love you madly, madly,
It's a long lost cause I can never win
For the civilized world accepts as unforgivable sin
Any talking out loud with any librarian Such as Marian...
