I have a little sweetheart, her name is Nora McCrea;
She works down in the fact'ry and is always cheerful and gay.
Each night I go to see her; I tell you it is fine,
For as we sit together, I hold her hand in mine.
Nora, I adore her, the sweetest girl in the town;
So winsome And pretty, dressed in her Sunday gown.
And as we go walking, the boys all stare and say:
"There goes Danny Burke and dear little Nora McCrea."
Now I've courted little Nora for just two years this May:
At first I thought I was cut out by handsome Johnnie McKay;
But now I know I've won her, she's promised to be my bride,
And we're to be always together, ever side by side.- Chorus.
