I've the sweetest girl in town-sweetest name, Jennie Brown;
I'm the euvy of the lads for miles around;
They would gladly kiss the ground where she walks, Jennie Brown,
But she's eyes for only me, this sweet Jennie Brown;
Twice a week she lets me come to spend the evenings at her home.
Sunday evenings, after tea, she goes out to walk with me,
Then we talk of love so sweet, as we wander down the street;
Jealous eyes upon me stare, but I do not care.

I know that she loves me, and that's enough for me;
I love Jennie, and she says that I am her sweetheart;
I know that she loves me, and that's enough for me;
I am happy in the love of sweet Jennie Brown.

Smiling face, with ne'er a frown, has my love, Jennie Brown;
Eves so bright and lips so red, and dimples round:
Mother thinks she's just too sweet, form so neat, tiny feet,
Calls her daughter when they meet, my sweet Jennie Brown:
Lately, when we take a walk, of other things than love to talk-
Tables, carpets, china-wares, bed-room, parlor suits and chairs.
Jennie talks of a home for three-mother, Jennie, and for me;
Says that she my lot will share, now why should I care?- Chorus.
