Words and Music by Gus Williams.

There is a girl, a little pearl, and Jennie is her name;
When first I met this little pet, she set my heart a-flame;
With eyes so blue, they pierce you through, and leave a tender sting.
Most ev'ry night when stars are bright, around her house I sing:

Jennie Reilly, you're the girl for style;
Jennie Reilly, my heart you do beguile.
Jennie Reilly, wear your prettiest smile,
And I'll make you my wife, sweet Jennie Reilly.

She's full of fun, with ev'ry one, she loves to romp and play;
She likes to chaff, and then her laugh, you can hear all the day.
I oft rejoice to hear her voice, in melody so sweet;
Just like a bird the notes are heard, so charming and complete.- Chorus.

She promised me quite cheerfully to be my darling bride;
Such happiness, I must confess, fills me with joy and pride.
When we're made one the "boys" I'll shun, and settle down for life;
But 'till that day I'll sing so gay about my future wife.- Chorus.
