I bought a bonnet to suit my face
I had my petticoat trimmed with lace
I looked at the mirror, around I twirled
And then I went off in the wide, wide world

I dreamed of gentlemen I would meet
I saw them all kneeling at my feet
I can't understand it, my hair is all curled
But my goodness me, it's a great big world

And it's cold, cold, cold and we'll soon be old
Alas and a lack, it's a great big world

I learned to sew and I learned to bake
I even frosted an angel cake
On Saturday evening when folks dropped in
My house was as neat as a brand new pin

I thought by learning each social grace
Some likely chap might learn to forget my face
I can't understand it, I've knitted and pearled
But my goodness me it's a great big world

And it's cold, cold, cold and we'll soon be old
Alas and a lack, it's a great big world

A million miles I've danced or more
In hopes Prince Charming would cross the floor
I can't understand it, I've waltzed and I've whirled
But my goodness me, it's a great big world

And it's cold, cold, cold and we'll soon be old
Alas and a lack, it's a great big world

But I'll keep on knitting and doing it well
My slippers are one thing I never will sell
My petticoat's waiting because who can tell?
It's a great big world, it's a great big world
