JUST THE GIRL FOR ME.
Copyright, 1893, by Spaulding & Kornder.
Words and Music by Wm. B. Glenroy.
Just down the lane beyond the turn, a little cottage stands,
The girl I love resides within, my heart her smile commands
I call to see her every night, the stars shine from above,
We stroll together arm in arm, and tell our dreams of love.
She's not so very pretty, no prize beyond compare,
No eyes that shine as diamonds do, no locks of golden hair,
But then she's always pleasant, and as good as good can be;
Though others may not fancy her, she's just the girl for me.
Although she dresses very plain, she always looks so neat,
Her modest ways and smiling face, in manners so discreet:
Her heart is full of kindness, and her voice is meek and mild,
I love her now in womanhood, I loved her when a child. - Chorus.
