ANNIE ROONEY'S JOE.
Copyright, 1890, by Harding Bros.
Words and Music by J. P, Skelly.
My name is Joseph Dennessy, you've heard of my sweetheart;
We've travelled long together, and I know we ne'er shall part;
There's something in her happy smile that wins me as I go,
And I am not ashamed to say: I'm Annie Rooney's Joe.
I'm Annie Rooney's Joe, and everybody knows it;
Let her heart feel Joy or woe. from mine own none can depose it;
I know she thinks of me while far away I go,
And in her heart, tho' we're apart, I'm Annie Rooney's Joe.
She occupies a mansion fair of purity and love,
And in my dreams she's ever there, like an angel from above;
Although the is not rich and grand, and what she does not know
Might fill books by the dozen, still I am Annie Rooney's Joe.- Chorus.
The same sweet Annie Rooney has a grievance for her woes-
When rainy weather comes about she feels her "corny toes "';
Sometimes she's not accessible unto her bully beau.
But all the same she knows that I am Annie Rooney's Joe.-Chorus.
