Shirley Temple
Key: C

 6   -5   5    3    2    
The ball-room was filled 
 5    -4   -3    -1
with fash-ion's throng,
2   -2    3  -4   6   -5    3
It shone with a thous-and lights;
 3   -3    3* -3 -5 5  -3    3   -3  -4
And there was a wom-an who passed a-long,
 5   6   -5  5  -4  -3   -5
The fair-est of all the sights.
6  -5  5   3   2  3   5    -4  -3  -1
A girl to her lov-er then soft-ly sighed,
   -1 2   -2  3  -4 -5  -5*  6
"There's rich-es at her com-mand."
  6   6  -5   5*  -5    -3
"But she mar-ried for wealth, 
-4   5   3     5    6
not for love," he cried!
    3    3*  -3   -4 5 -4   -3   -5
"Though she lives in a man-sion grand."

cho
   3   6 -5* 6  5   -4 5  -5  -2  -3
"She's on-ly a bird in a gild-ed cage,
-5  6  -5 -4    3   -5  5
A beau-ti-ful sight to see.
 3   3*  -3    -3   -5  5  -3   3    -3   -4
You may think she's hap-py and free from care,
  5    6     -5    5   -4   -3 -5
She's not, though she seems to be.
  3   6   -5*  6    5   -4  5   -5  -2  -3
'Tis sad when you think of her wast-ed life
-5    6   -5  -4   3    -5   5
For youth can-not mate with age;
 3   3*  -3  3* -3   -5  
And her beau-ty was sold 
 5  -3  3    5    6
for an old man's gold,
  3   3* -3  -4 5  6   -5  5
She's a bird in a gild-ed cage."


I stood in a churchyard just at eve,
When sunset adorned the west;
And looked at the people 
who'd come to grieve
For loved ones now laid at rest.
A tall marble monument marked the grave
Of one who'd been fashion's queen;
And I thought, "She is happier here at rest,
Than to have people say when seen: "
