VERSE 01: You would know my name, sir?/ P'raps you're not to blame, sir,/ It's a nat'ral thing and a most polite one./ Have a try, to guess it, on you 'twill impress it/ If by any chance you should find the right one./ Genevieve! Celeste!/ Non! Neither I suggest, Non!/ Violette! Justine!/ Come, play the game!/Julie, p'raps? Marie? Josephine?/ I see I'm obliged to tell you what's my name.
CHORUS: Adele! Adele! Adele!/ So shy you can tell;/ Adele! Adele! Adele!/ She in Paree can't dwell/ Adele! Adele! Adele!/ Is no reigning belle!/ No red rose coquette/ But a coy violet/ is Adele! Pauvre Adele!
VERSE 02: Names, beyond a question,/ Ought to give suggestion/ Of the kind of girls who may chance to wear them,/ Hence Babette's a pert girl, Fifi naughty flirt girl,/ Veronique hates men and her glances scare them./ Pauline should be soulful/ Madeline be doleful,/ So Diane should tall and graceful be,/ That sir is my case, look me in the face/ Tell me if my name's the one for me.
