by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

Chorus
Language: English 
Give away her gowns,
Give away her shoes;
She has no more use
For her fragrant gowns;
Take them all down;
Blue, green, blue,
Lilac, pink, blue,
From their padded hangers;
She will dance no more
In her narrow shoes;
Sweep her narrow shoes
From the closet floor.
