Words by W. Murdoch Lind. Music by Edw. Ivison.

I'm a bashful little maiden, just eighteen years of age,
I'm young, 'tis true, but then I'm pretty fly;
At flitting I'm not backward, with the men I'm all the rage,
I'm not opposed to kissing on the sly.
My brothers tease me awful, they pinch me, pull my hair,
And say that I am always in the way;
But now I wear long dresses, so they'd better have a cure,
I'm out in society to-day.

Mama says I'm foolish, and papa says so, too,
In style and dress you bet I lead the way;
And I guess my face and figure and clothes will see me through,
I'm out in society to-day.

O, but won't it just be jolly to dress like other girls,
And go to all the dances and the shows;
Of course I'll wed for money, shine with diamonds and pearls,
I mean to have just lots and lots of beaut.
My ball dress is just lovely, it's cut-well, somewhat low,
My ma says that it's quite decolletay;
It really is becoming, and it's sure to be a "go,"
I'm out in society to-day.- Chorus.
