Written and sung by Gus Williams.

There is a nice young man I know,
A fire laddie too,
He's foreman of a company.
He's handsome, brave and true;
Of friends he has a score or more,
To keep him in his aim,
And without further preface,
I will now tell you his name-

Some call him " James," some call him " Jimmie,"
Others will say " Mister" when they speak to him;
Pa calls him " Jeems," ma calls him " Jamsie,"
But all the time to me he's only " Just plain Jim!"

Last "Winter to a ball we went,
The finest in the town,
I kept him dancing all the time,
Which made the ladies frown;
He was admired by ev'ry one
And the reporters came,
And asked me if I'd kindly give
To them my sweetheart's name.-Chorus

Last night he said to me the sweetest,
Dearest words in life,
And very soon I am to be
His happy little wife;
And when the parson asks his name,
If nervous he should be,
I know what I shall tell him,
If he should refer to me.-Chorus.
