She Wants to Have Her Name above the Door.
Written by James McAvoy
I've got a charming girl, and to me she's all the world;
She is sweet enough for any horse to eat;
I pass her house most every day. but I don't know where she lives.
For I forget the name and number of her street;
I asked her for a favor to send me her address;
I am worse off now than I was before;
But to her expense and cost, just for fear I would get lost.
She's going to have her name upon the door.
Yes. she's going to have her name upon the door,
And upon my word I cannot say what for;
She keeps no groceries she- no baker, no milliner or dressmaker.
But she's going to have her name upon the door.
Yes. she's going to have her name upon the door
So I'll never miss the number any more -
Just because I chanced to miss it the night we had the blizzard.
She is going to have her name above the door.
Yes, she's going to have her name above the door
She thinks some lady stole me once before;
I told her to get out dodgers, but she said 'twas too expensive,
That she'd rather have her name above the door. Chorus
Yea, she's going to have her name above the door,
And if i do not see it there'll be war:
When I didn't show up Sunday, she got a painter Monday,
She had him daub her name Upon the door.
And when he put her name upon the door.
Slit made him go and paint it on tie- an;
And the bartender on the corner said, for feat I'd disappoint In!,
She made him put her name upon the slat .Chorus.
Yes, he said he had her name upon the slate.
And every day she wrote it once or twice;
he asked her if she'd settle when he filled her growler kettle.
But she told him to put her name upon the ice
So he had to put her name up for a grudge
It was a bill for whiskey, beer and budge;
Now, for fear that he'd get busted, he'd have her nobs arrested-
So she's going to have her name before the judge. Chorus
Still she's going to have her name upon the door
It ought to he under the carpets on the floor;
But she's bought a calcium gleamer to reflect a flashy streamer,
So I can see her name above the door.
Now. if she'd only lake a little bit of chalk,
And some morning out to the country take a walk
Write her initials on the fences from Yonkers to Mott Haven,
Then she'd surely have her name above New York. Chorus.
