American Old Time Song Lyrics: 34 Philadelphia Once More
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 34
PHILADELPHIA ONCE MORE.
I left Trenton City a long way behind me,
The Good Will Boys and Miss Lizzie Gore,
They all became frightened when they can't find me.
So I must go back to Philadelphia once more.
Philadelphia once more, Philadelphia once more,
And so when I rise with the lark on the morrow,
I will travel again to Philadelphia once more.
Lizzie was my sweetheart, and the boys all liked her,
So I got angry, left her, and slummed the door,
But soon I cooled down and my affections did miss her.
And I must go back to Philadelphia once more.- Chor.
So gals, one and all, listen to my ditty:
My thoughts on that gal made me feel dizzy.
So when I get back to Philadelphia City
I will then soon forget my false-hearted Lizzie.- Chor.
Oh, sweet Trenton City! Oh, dear Trenton City!
I regret that I ever left your bright shore.
But when I rise with the lark on the morrow,
I must go back to Philadelphia once more. - Chorus.
