A PRETTY GIRL.
Copyright, 1891, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by J. Cheever Goodwin. Music by Woolson Morse.
A pretty girl, a summer's night a moon, serenely mellow,
A fond caress, a loving vow, a kiss, and all is well, oh!
Again the girl-another night-same moon-so far all's well, oh!
But if we took another look, we'd see another fellow.
A shady nook, a babbling brook, red lips where kisses dwell, oh!
"Swear to be true!" "I do! I do! "pwp, pwp! the lucky fellow!
Again the nook, once more the brook, same lips-but sad to tell, oh!
The one who sips those ruby lips is quite another fellow.
