THE GIRL NEXT DOOR TO ME.
Copyright, 1891, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Written and Composed by J. W. Hall.

You hear folks say that spooning is a most delightful sport,
But, ever since I've tried it, nothing but bad luck it's brought;
For to a girl next door to me I made love night and day,
And oh! what I have suffered is heart-rending in its way

Chorus.
Next door to me. next door to me, the girl next door to met
Her hair's a beautiful ginger tint.
But her lovely eyes have a diff'rent squint-
Next door to me, next door to me, the girl next door to me!
All my friends grin And say
I've been made a "jay "
By the girl next door to me.

I called, dressed in my Sunday best, and looked so "span and spick,"
I'd bought a button-hole bouquet, and twirled a "mashers' "stick;
Her brother met me at the door-a savage six-foot lout,
Who said, "Hello! you here again?" then turned me inside out!

Chorus.
Next door to me, next door to me, the girl next door to me!
Her brother, big, he knows how to box,
And right on my nose rat-a-tat he knocks-
Next door to me. next door to me, the girl next door to me!
Yes, and each of my eyes
Swelled to twice its size,
Through the girl next door to me.

Her dad came up that moment, and I tried to him explain;
Said he, "Are you a sheriff, or do you come after Janet"
I said, "I love your daughter!" And he then commenced to "slog,"
And shouted, "Seize him, Towser!" when up came the big bull-dog.

Chorus.
Next door to me, next door to me, the girl next door to met
They keep a dog with a healthy bite.
And it took a nip at my" pants" last night-
Next door to me, next door to me, the girl next door to met
It's all over the town
That I can't sit down,
Through the girl next door to me.
