On the Beach, at Long Branch.

On the beach at Long Branch, one fine Summer's day,
I had a novel, reading, to pass the time away,
And so interested was I in the plot,
A gent stood there beside me, still I saw him not,
Till at last, by chance, my eye lids I did raise,
I found him on me looking with enraptured gaze:
Bright blue eyes so sparkling, handsome Grecian nose.
Teeth of pearly whiteness, quite the pink of beaux.

Twits on the beach at Long Branch, one fine Summer's day.
i met this handsome man who stole my heart away;
Now I feel so happy as blissful moments glide.
The day is quickly "coming when I shall be his bride.

As like one awaking from some happy dream.
We glances did exchange, his eyes with love did beam,
And e'er much time was over we began to chat,
And hours passed away, still he beside me sat;
And with ways so winning he did love impart,
My spirits rose as high as the early morning lark;
He told me that he loved me. vowed that all his life
Would be to him worthless unless I'd be his wife.-Chorus.

He said that if I'd marry till troubles we would drown.
And live in blissful ignorance of all the cares of town;
With soft persuasive power he told me of his love,
Vowing to be true, by all the powers above;
He asked me if I'd marry, pressed me then to say,
Till to his wishes yielding, I named the happy day:
He said his cup of bliss was tilled quite to the brim.
He'd live alone for me, And I alone for him.

Spoken-And I can assure you, ladies and gentlemen, he is one
of those dear delightful fellows that no young girl could resist, and
I'm very happy and proud to say: Up to the present moment I've
no cause to regret that-Chorus.
