Words and Music by Edgar Selden.

In a crowded tenement, where she helps to pay the rent,
Dwells a little girl that's all the world to me;
She's a shop-girl trim and neat, and she is so pure and sweet,
I'd spend my wages on her, to a cent,
And so, last Sunday night, while the lamp was burning bright,
In her mother's cozy parlor sat we two;
I took both her hands in mine, for she seemed to me divine;
And said, "Please listen while I tell my love for you."

I love you as I never loved before;
You're the only girl on earth that I adore;
Do not bid me go away, let us name the wedding day;
I love you as I never loved before.

Then, as anyone may guess, she blushed somewhat, more or less,
For our hearts beat faster than the ticking clock:
Would she answer "yes" or "no?" would she bid me stay or go?
I could not bear to lose her, I confess;
So, as I went to start, she brought joy into my heart;
For she laid her pretty head upon my sleeve,
And with such a teasing smile, said, "Perhaps, but wait awhile;
Repeat to me again those words before you leave." -Chorus.
