I've a sweetheart-that's a chestnut-but I'll tell you
That you never saw a girl like mine before'Tis her winsome smile has caused the popularity
Of McFaddon'e little candy store.
I've spent enough to own that place, on things I did not want,
Just so that I might see her lovely face.
Dolly Malone, my love, my own, with a kind word for every one;
Of fairest, most fair; of jewels, most rare, is my Little Dolly Malone.
Old McFaddon scowls and wrinkles up his forehead
Every time I chance to he about:
Then he scares up work for pretty little Dolly-
He does It just to freeze me out;
But Dolly's promised to be mine-we'll start a place next door,
And Mac, be might just as well assign.-Chorus.
Many people living in palatial mansions,
With all the good things of this world their own,
Are not half as happy as I know that we shall be
In our humble little cottage home,
For I have something far above their gold-full well I know
That it could never buy my Dolly's love.-Chorus.
