As sung by Tony Pastor.

Her cheeks are like lilies And roses,
Her lips they are peaches and cream;
Her smile a wee dimple discloses,
A couch where a fairy might dream.
She's free from all new-fangled notions
-the man who gets her gets a pearl;
For good, honest love And affection,
Oh, give me the old-fashioned girl.

No fol-de-rols over her bonnet,
Her locks have a natural curl;
No necktie with beau-catchers on it
Has the old-fashioned, everyday girl.

Now just let us vary the picture,
The new-fashioned girl comes in sight;
Her hair, you can bet, is no fixture.
Her waist is the least little mite.
Her face isn't made up for kissing,
It's covered with powder called pearl;
You don't dip your nose in a flour barrel
In kissing the old-fashioned girl.-Chorus.

She doesn't wear "bangs," and her "tooties"
Won't go in a number one shoe;
A calico dress shows her beauties,
She don't melt in rain or in dew.
She wouldn't be seen in a Derby,
And yet she sets hearts in a whirl;
She's just a sweet little home body,
Is the good-natured, old-fashioned girl.-Chorus.

Then give me the girl of my fancy,
Who's not a "blonde," dyed in the wool;
Some substantial Nelly or Nancy
We used to meet often at school.
A butterfly's all very charming,
But give me of women the pearl;
The girl for all times and all seasons,
The old-fashioned, everyday girl.-Chorus.
