Words by J. Whitcomb Reilly. Music by Alfred T. Brisebols.

We're not divided by oceans, by seas or by miles a score,
For my own dear little lady just lives at the very next door;
She's not a queen with golden hair, nor has she teeth of pearl,
She's none the less a beauty, and she's Johnny Reilly's girl.

I've known her nearly all her life, I know she'll make a model wife;
Ev'ry one admires her, they all think her a pearl.
The pride of all the neighborhood, all know her to be pure and good,
And she's known to ev'ry one as Johnny Reilly's girl.

Her Pa was never a banker, a true, honest workman la he;
His greatest pride is his daughter, who'll soon be a wife to me.
Her father says I'm a dandy, it made my heart fairly twirl,
When 'twas decided forever, she'd be Johnny Reilly's girl.-Refrain.

She was eighteen last December, and I will be twenty in May;
We always have been companions since we were small children at play.
I'll fight her battles, I love her so, my flag of love I'll unfurl,
And until death shall part us, she'll be Johnny Reilly's girl- Refrain.
