I'm So Different from the Rest.

Let people talk of the beauties of to-day.
They have to walk when they see me come their way;
Witty, gritty, pretty slick, I discount them all so quick;
In my way I'm so gay and blasť, and I will try und tell you why-
Just why I am so different from the rest:
I do not care a nip for any living chap,
There Is no fellow that I love the best:
I do not wink and make them think I'm flirting with a zest:
My quiet ways can catch more jays, I'm different from the rest.
Just why I am so different from the rest, I do not care a rap for any
There is no fellow that I love the best;
My quiet ways can catch more jays, I'm different from the rest!
I've seen the girls in the lands across the sea,
The lords and earls of a high and low degree:
Left them all to seek my hand, offered me their wealth and land,
But my gall made them all take a fall;
I did not mash or take their cash,
Because I am so different from the rest, etc.
