Down around the Battery, me and Jennie Slattery,
There every evening we go for a walk;
Going together a year or more, what are they keeping comp'ny for?
You'd be surprised to bear how all the neighbors talk.

Pretty Jennie Slattery, pay-day next Saturday,
Sunday night a wedding down at Tracy's:
Who'd have thought a year ago that the boy who was so slow
Would marry the prettiest girl that works in Macy'a.

Talk about your jealousy-what won't the fellows say
When I am married to my pretty Jen.;
I've got nothing and neither has she, so much the better for her and me,
For If I strike it rich, we'll be twice as happy then.- Chorus.

To a flat up town we'll go, which Jennie will keep just so,
Then folks will say that we're in the swim; [thin:
Sunshine and shadow it may creep in-we'll stick together through thick And
I know my Jennie-yes, And she knows her Tim.-Chorus.
