One Girl in the World for Me.
Copyright, 1895, by The Marlon Publishing Co.
Words and Music by Dave Marion.
There's only one girl in the world that I would call my wife,
And the girl I sing of I love dearer than my life;
My sweetheart's age is just eighteen-she greets me with a smile.
And when she says good evening, John, I'm thinking all the while that there is
Only one girl in the world for me,
Only one girl has my sympathy;
She's not so very pretty, or of a high degree,
There's only one girl in the world for me.
My sweetheart is an orphan, and I'm a factory lad,
But if work was steady, why it would not be so bad;
We've been engaged just one year, and last night at the gate
She said, as tears rose in her eyes my own true love, I'll wait. So there Is- Cho.
