BONNIE LITTLE ANNIE.
Copyright, 1896, by Thos. H. Murray.
By Charles Graham.
Some say a girl that's pretty likes to flirt the days away;
But mine is all that's sweet and neat, she's not a bit too gay;
She's idolized by ev'ry one the other side of town.
I waited years for Annie, and at last she's all my own.
Yes, she's my bonnie little Annie, after all she'll be my wife;
She knows I love her all the while, for her I'd give my life.
After all the days of waiting there's no happier man than me;
Last night she whispered "Yes," and promised mine alone she'll be.
Of course, she's always fall of fan, she's very teasing, too;
She kept the boys all guessing, sure the troth they never knew;
But now she's changed entirely; she has grown demure and shy.
She gave her loving heart to me, And that's the reason why. - Refrain.
