From the Film:             Rose Marie  1954 (M)

Where the cataracts roar
And the north winds blow
And the snowflakes eddy and whirl
For a man, it's a wonderful show
But it's no place for a girl

When the water birds soar
>From the frozen stream
And the land turns to mother-of-pearl
'Tis a place for a man and his dream
But it's no place for a girl

A girl must have the best of things
A chance to bud, a chance to blossom
Ladies' fingers are made for rings
Not for skinning the hide off a possum

The more that you live
The more you will learn
As the years of your life unfurl
In the arms of a man
The right kind of man
Is the right place
For a girl
