Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 46
THE GIRL I LOVE.
Copyright, 1891, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by George Dailey. Music by Andrew Mack.
There is a girl that I adore, she lives across the way;
Standing by her cottage gate I see her every day.
At night my thoughts oft wander to the tiny stars above,
I seem to see in every one the girl I love.
The girl I love, the girl I love,
She seems to be in every tiny star above;
Every flower, sweet and rare,
Every bird that wings the air,
Reminds me of the girl I love.
Tho' when you wander 'round the earth, or sail the deep blue sea.
Winsome maidens you may meet, but none so fair as she.
My heart is just a peaceful nest to hold my gentle dove,
And soon I'll wed, with joy complete, the girl I love.- Chorus.
