The Pretty Little Maiden's Sea Trip.
Copyright, 1893, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Words by J. P. Harrington. Music by Georee LeBrunn.

Billy Brown he came to me. just about a week ago,
"Let us take our sweethearts for the day. down the bay, what d'yer say?'"
Well, of course, I couldn't say no: we consulted Jess and Flo',
And we all arranged next Saturday we'd a sailing go!
We went out in a sailing yacht, but soon into a storm we got,
Waves went "wooh!" And we went rolling, things were a trifle hot!

And those pretty little maidens who never had been on the blue.
Never had been off the shore before cried "Oh, Lor! nevermore!"
"Will we go along with you? take us back again, oh do!
Can't we please get out and walk a hit, boo-oo-oo!"

Vainly did we look around, we were quite a mile from shore,
And those blessed waves kept lashing us, crashing us, splashing us.
Never had we been before in a sea that bumped us more.
Little wonder Jess and Florrie felt somewhat sad and sore;
Poor dear Jess in my arms reposed, Flo' in Bill's with her dear eyes closed,
And both Jess und Flo', poor darlings, they were so indisposed.- Chorus.

All at once a mighty surge ran against the lively Maud,
It was very near upsetting us, fretting us, wetting us;
Bill was swearing like a lord, and when we with one accord
Looked to see where Jess and Florrie were, both were overboard!
When we fished out the darling pair, oh! how great was the diff'rence there,
Jess had left all her bloom behind her, Flo' had lost her false hair.- Chorus.
