Words by Fulton Gardner. Music by Adolph Kirchner.

My sweetheart is a brakeman
On the elevated line,
And oft I hear him calling,
"Hello! sweet Forty-nine!"
That's the number on the door,
He doesn't know my name,
But he throws lots of kisses
From the elevated train.

Now the train is coming,
It's swinging up the line;
I hear the engine, engine, engine,
Here he is, "Hello! hello! sweet Forty-nine!"
The same to you, my dear darling,
He's always here on time;
Good-bye, my ducky, ducky, ducky, ducky darling,
"Good-bye, good-bye, sweet Forty-nine!

Oh, yes, I love my darling,
So very sweet and fine,
And when I hear the whistle,
The rumble on the line;
I fly into the window,
My face against the pane,
Waiting for his love and kisses
From the elevated train.-Refrain.

They tell me he is flirting,
And that's his little game,
He's mashing all the ladies
From the elevated train.
Perhaps he has a hundred,
He calls me, "Forty-nine;"
Now list, I hear him coming
On the elevated line.-Refrain.

Now there's the good old engineer,
His name is Michael Cann;
He always throws me kisses,
But he's a married man.
If his wife should tumble
To his naughty, naughty game,
He'll think there was a smash-up
On that elevated train.-Refrain.
