Come to me, sweet Marie.
Sweet Marie, come to me,
Not because your face is fair, love, to see,
But your soul so pure and sweet,
Makes me falter at your feet,
Makes my happiness complete, sweet Marie.

(Mrs. Barnes: "That's got a lot of verses. That's the only one I can sing."
Dr. Wolf: "Well, that's a pretty song. Go on, talk. It doesn't matter.")
