Lost Yiddish song: Di manikurzshistke sung by Lola Folman

I've had no luck finding the melody for this song. I wonder if it is in this book: Lider fun Lola Folman's repertuar, published in Warsaw in 1933, "Ale tekstn geshribn fun Yitshok Perlov" or as they have it, Ale ṭeḳsṭn geshribn fun Yitsḥoḳ Perloṿ. Worldcat knows of this book but doesn't know of any place it can be found.

Di manikurzshistke
sung by Lola Folman

Fun nayn a zeyger inderfri
Biz in di farnakhtn
In Rezurele zitst si
an umetik-fartrakhte:
Moniek hot an andere moyd
Oyf ir ort genumen -
Vert zi bleykh un vert zi royt
Un ken tsu zikh nist kumen

refreyn:
Klientelekh zey ayln zikh
Ki negelekh tsu fayln zikh
Tsu putsn un tsu makhn manikir
Shert zi zey di heytelekh
Zey tseyln fun di baytelekh
Di groshelekh di etlekhe far ir

2. Vi gliklekh hot zi zikh gefilt
mit im a yedn ovnt
O, tulyen flegt zi zikh tsu im
Azoy heys in ovnt
Podarunkes brengen r'flegt
Far ir un bombonierkes
Hentshkelekh un zekelekh
Zhvartse lokierkes

3. Fil komplimentn makht men ir
Zi halt ir blik arop
Zaproshet men ir oyf shpatsir -
Dan zogt zi op:
Moniek hot an andere moyd
Oyf ir ort genumen -
Vert zi bleykh un vert zi royt
Un tsu zikh nist kumen
