Music Man – Marian The Librarian lyrics

Madam Librarian
What can I do, my dear, to catch your ear
I love you madly, madly Madam Librarian... Marian
Heaven help us if the library caught on fire
And the Volunteer Hose Brigademen
Had to whisper the news to Marian... Madam Librarian!
What can I say, my dear, to make it clear
I need you badly, badly, Madam Librarian... Marian
If I stumbled and I busted my what-you-may-call-it
I could lie on your floor unnoticed
'Till my body had turned to carrion.... Madam Librarian.
Now in the moonlight, a man could sing it
In the moonlight
And a fellow would know that his darling
Had heard ev'ry word of his song
With the moonlight helping along.
But when I try in here to tell you, dear
I love you madly, madly, Madam Librarian... Marian
It's a long lost cause I can never win
For the civilized world accepts as unforgivable sin
Any talking out loud with any librarian
Such as Marian..... Madam Librarian.
