Words by Wm. B. Glenroy. Music by Henry Lamb.
Come, boy?, and listen; don't turn away,
While I tell of a belle go neat and gay-
These words were spoken to his chums by Neil,
And, with a laugh, a photograph he showed them and said:
That's my darling Carrie, the girl I mean to marry;
Every evening, just at eight, standing by the garden gate
With my darling Carrie, so happily we tarry;
Oh, what bliss in just one kiss from Carrie.
Each lad pronounced her handsome and fair;
Some one said, when you're wed we'll all be there.
Now, boys, you know her, softly murmured Ned,
And pointing to the picture fair, he smiled as he said:- Chorus.
