Nellie Reilly Makes a Hit Wid Me.
Copyright, 1895, by James Stillman.
Words and Music by Richard R. Hanch.
Dere's just one girl in all de push ez makes a hit wid me,
Dat's Jimmy Reilly's sister Nell, wot I calls on ter see;
De guys is all dead sore, dey're all down in de moat',
Coz while dey've lost dere nerve, yer see, I goes and cops her out.
Nellie Reilly makes a hit wid me,
She's a dead swell damsel, just watch me; (Spoken: see?)
I'm going to shake the gang, and plant wot coin I can,
So's I kin buckle up with Nellie Reilly.
Dey sez ez Wenus was a peach, perhaps dat may all be,
never knowd de gal myself; but den, 'tween you and me,
'Longside of little Nell she'd be a dizzy frost,
Coz when it comes to peaches, why, my Nellie she's de boss.-Chorus.
