Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

You may talk about your namby-pamby summer girls,
Oh, a-lolling on a hammock in the shade,
But the captivating charmer of the nobby swells,
Oh, she's the young, athletic beauty, tailor-made.
She loves to walk an easy, breezys swinging style;
Up early in the morning-never late-
She greets you with a charming, winning, rosy-posy smile-
I represent the girl that's up to date.

I tell you she's a picture, riding on a bike (Break),
Delightfully delicious, what the chappies like (Break);
Oh, you'll meet her in the ever-clever, swagger set,
A beauty that the darlings imitate;
She's really feminine, and she's never masculine-
I represent the girl that's up to date.

Oh. it's sad to see a silly-nilly, pretty dear,
Oh, a-bending, like a willow, very frail,
While she reads a yellow novel-oh, it's very clear
That's why the poor, romantic beauty's like a rail.
She likes to talk of heroes, and their mighty deeds;
She sings about the lover and his mate:
If she would take a bracer, it's the only thing she needs-
I represent the girl that's up to date.-Chorus.

Oh. I love to meet the chappies: oh, they're jolly boys,
Fresh from college, horsey, sporty-out for fun;
They can paddle, ride a saddle-can't they make a noise!
High rollers everywhere, you bet they take the bun.
It's sad to see a lardy-dardy, dreamy dude­He's never up to time, but always late-
If you struck him with a feather, oh, he think you very rude,
And I represent the girl that's up to date.- Chorus.
