NANCY CLANCYS BEAU.

Words and music by Wm. B. Glenroy.
My heart was captured long ago, by such a precious queen,
Her name is Nancy Clancy, and none else like her I've seen;
We stroll together moonlight nights, with hearts so light and gay,
And when the hour of parting comes, I kiss her, as I say:
Nancy Clancy, you're my fancy, such a queen are you,
Eyes as bright as stars at night, always so kind and true;
Nancy Clancy, you're my fancy, ev'rywhere I go
They compliment me just because I'm Nancy Clancy's beau.
Her home is not a palace, for her parents they are poor,
But Nancy keeps it neat and clean, of that you're always sure;
The proudest moment of my life, the hrighest joy I know
Is just to clasp her in my arms and whisper soft and low:-Chorus.
