As sung by Tony Pastor.
Tune- "My Nellie's Blue Eyes."

Once I swore by eyes of blue.
Heaps of trouble I've been thro,
Would you know the reason true?
My Kelly's a fraud!
When we met 'twas at a fair,
Oh, she looked so lovely there,
Now for her I do not care,
My Nelly's a fraud!
Just one week before we wed,
At a ball some duffer said:
"That's my girl I'll punch your head!"
My Nelly's a fraud!

One pair of black eyes!
He wasn't my size!
That's what I got, when she struck out,
Much to my surprise!
One pair of black eyes!
Friends, take my advice,
Don't strike a man like Sullivan,
One pair of black eyes!

On my arm she used to cling,
Happy as the birds in Spring;
Oft we went tobogganing,
My Nelly's a fraud!
When her pa would come home late,
Oft he'd catch us at the gate,
How he'd swing his number eight,
My Nelly's a fraud!
When I asked him for her hand,
His disgust was something grand;
And now I understand
My Nelly's a fraud!-Chorus.
