LITTLE FANNIE McINTYRE.

Words and Music by Paul Dresser.
I've a little sweetheart, Fannie, that's her name,
We met only yesterday-tell me, can you blame
Me for loving an angel, with eyes as bright as fire?
Some day I am going to wed Miss McIntyre.
Little Fanny Mclntyre, she's the one I most admire;
She sets my heart strings on fire, little Fannie Mclntyre;
She leads in our old church choir, she's the picture of her sire;
Girls, they envy, boys admire, little Fanny McIntyre.
Like a burst of sunshine, like a dear, sweet dream.
She came into my life, strange as it may seem;
We both loved at first sight, two lips in kisses met.
Oue to live for the other, sworn to ne'er forget.-Chorus.
Soon will be the wedding, soon the bells will ring,
Angels up in heaven will wish us joy and sing;
Could we tell of the future, to what hopes we aspire,
Then you'd hear folks singing of Fanny McIntyre-Chorus.
