Words and Music by Monroe H. Rosenfeid.

In me you see a little girl demure, who's quite averse from sin;
I dote on all that's very good and pure, and try all hearts to win;
The Army of Salvation I now fondly represent.
And to each young man here I sigh, Why don't you all repent?

Will you come? will you come?
Will you join in the Army of the sweet Salvation?
Will you come? will you come?
Or you won't get to heaven when you die.

At nice young men I never, never smile, although they wink at me;
I'm very quiet nearly all the while, as maidens ought to be;
I never dance, for that is wrong, although the steps I know,
Yet when I hear a jolly song I'd like to shake this toe.- Chorus.

Some people say we never should be wed, that married men are bad,
That marriage is a failure, so it's said, and women always sad;i
Perhaps you think I'm single, too, have no connubial sins,
But come with me, I'll show to you a pair of bouncing twins.-Chorus.

On rainy days the girls are often seen parading down the street;
They lift their skirts, some pink and others green; I think that's indiscreet;
I never try the men to charm, but when it comes to clothes,
I think it isn't any harm to show these pretty hose.- Chorus.
