coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame!
charm the husk right off of the corn, Mame!
got the banjoes strummin' and plunkin' out a tune to beat the band.
whole plantation's hummin' since you brought Dixie back to Dixieland.
make the cotton easy to pick, Mame!
give my old mint julep a kick, Mame!
Who ever thought a Yankee would put a little Dixie down to shame.
made us feel alive again, you've given us the drive again.
make the south revive again, Mame!
brought the cake-walk back into style, Mame!
make the weepin' willow tree smile, Mame!
skin is Dixie satin, there's rebel in your manner and your speech.
may be from Manhattan, Georgia never had a sweeter peach.
make our black-eyed peas and our grits Mame!
like the bill-of-fare at the Ritz, Mame!
came, you saw, you conquered and absolutely nothing is the same.
special fascination'll prove to be inspirational.
We think you're just sensational.
Mame! Mame! Mame! Mame!
