MY PEARL'S A BOWERY GIRL.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by Wm. Jerome. Music by Andrew Mack.
Of course, ev'ry bny has a sweetheart,
And some boys they have two or three;
Of all the girls in this great city
There is only one "in it" with me.
She lives with her folks on the Bowery,
A few doors away from Canal,
And helps to support her old mother.
Does my little Bow'ry gal.
My pearl is a Bow'ry girl.
She's all the world to me;
She's "in it" with any the girls 'round the town,
And a "corking good-looker." sect
At Walhalla Hall, why, she kills them all,
As waltzing together we twirl;
She sets them all crazy, a "spieler," a "daisy,"
For my pearl's a Bow'ry girl.
In summer we go down to "Coney's,"
Together we stroll 'long the beach,
And sometimes we go in the ocean.
For at swimming, you bet. she's a "peach."
The other boys of me are jealous,
But with me, way, that "cuts no ice."
I'm going to lead pearl to the altar
As soon as I gets the price.- Chorus.
