Words and Music by the Wesleys (Florence, Teddy and Neil).
There's a girl that lives in our town, she's modest as can be,
She's the envy of the ladies, she's so happy, gay and free;
She reads the latest novels, the daily papers, too;
She's posted on the races, And bets a cent or two.
McInerny, you're a daisy, you're a darling on the street;
You're the belle at all the picnic parks, you trip lightly on your feet;
You have all the young men crazy, sure the old men are just as bad;
Your style is very hard to beat, and it is the latest fad.
She's well up in all the fashions, with dress low at the neck.
She's expensive to the dudies, she eats candy by the peck;
Eats frogs' legs by the dozens, and soft shell crabs on toast;
Drinks soda And don't feel it, I'm always well she'll boast.- Refrain.
Now her pa's a politician, of course he has a pull,
And the young bloods take this girl out, and drink wine until they're full;
This girl will never marry, she's modest and too shy;
She's Maggie Mclnerny, this daisy is too fly.-Refrain.
