Mandy
by Irving Berlin
Cover page to the sheet music.

[Verse]:

I was strolling out one evening by the silv'ry moon

I could hear somebody singing a familiar tune

So I stopped a while to listen

Not a word I wanted to miss

It was just somebody serenading something like this


[Refrain]:

Mandy

There's a minister handy

And it sure would be dandy

If we'd let him make a fee

So don't you linger

Here's the ring for your finger

Isn't it a humdinger?

Come along and let the wedding chimes

Bring happy times

For Mandy and me

Quotations

  • 1928 Joyce Lankester Brisley: Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories. Chapter 1:
    But Mother and Father and Grandpa and Grandma and Uncle and Aunty couldn't very well call out "Millicent Margaret Amanda" every time they wanted her, so they shortened it to "Milly-Molly-Mandy" which is quite easy to say.
  • 1994 P.D.James: Original Sin ISBN 0679438890 page 10:
    Without looking up, she asked: "Is your name Mandy or Amanda Price?"
    "Mandy, Miss Etienne." In other circumstances Mandy would have pointed out that if her name were Amanda the CV would have said so.
