Words by Geo. F. Dittmar. Music by Louis Dittmar.

In a moss-covered cottage that stands on the hill dwells my little Mary Ann;
Last night I proposed, but to me she said: "Have patience, my dear, if you can."
I waited patiently for you, my heart belongs to thee.
For can't you see that patience and me no longer will agree?

My little sweetheart, give to me your hand;
You're always teasing as no one ever can.
Time it is flying, for you I'm sighing,
My own sweetheart, little Mary Ann.

I know that your father and mother will miss their dear little Mary Ann;
But when we are wed and settled in life we'll visit, whenever we can,
That little cottage on the hill, your home of childhood days;
You will agree, my darling, with me-true love finds many ways.- Chorus.

I will make life worth living if you will consent to be my darling wife:
I'll strive very hard, that you may enjoy the pleasure and comfort in life;
And when old age comes creeping on, together we will stand
Until the day that we're called away true lovers hand in hand,-Chorus.
