Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II  Music By Richard Rodgers

American servicemen cheer on their beloved Bloody Mary, a local Tonkinese entrepreneur, as she confronts a Marine for not buying one of the grass skirts she’s selling.

“Bloody Mary” LYRICS

Bloody Mary is the girl I love,
Bloody Mary is the girl I love,
Bloody Mary is the girl I love—
Now ain’t that too damn bad!

Her skin is tender as DiMaggio’s glove,
Her skin is tender as DiMaggio’s glove,
Her skin is tender as DiMaggio’s glove—
Now ain’t that too damn bad!

Bloody Mary’s chewin’ Betel nuts,
Bloody Mary’s chewin’ Betel nuts,
Bloody Mary’s chewin’ Betel nuts—
And she don’t use Pepsodent.
Now ain’t that too damn bad!
