She is not as amusing as Sophie, but she has a,
She has a little something. I think she's,
She has a certain quality of, uh . . .
Dementia! I call her, I call her, Nanette."
Oh! Oh-o-o-oh, Nanette!
Not a sound, not a sigh.
The world rushes by.

No one dreams of Nanette.
Through the night, through the day,
People rush on their way
With never a sigh or regret.
And they are laughing and drinking.
So, so heedless and unthinking of
Nnn-that's me, Nanette!
