THE GIRL NEXT DOOR
Copyright, MDCCCXCV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Will H. Friday, Jr.
I've lived within my present home a month, or maybe more;
Contented with my folks I lived till then,
But since I'm there, I met a Miss, none such I've met before,
With charms just made to captivate the men.
So graceful and so neat, so winsome and so sweet-
She's the girl next door, the girl next door-
Bewitching and so handsome Is the girl next door.
Now whene'er I hear her name my heart bursts in a flameI'm in love with the girl next door.
So very soon the wedding belle will ring in tones of joy,
Two loving hearts will then be very glad;
A happy youth will march beside a maiden sweet and coy,
In bridal robes of white she will be clad.
We'll wed And live in bliss, myself and this young Miss.- Chorus.
