Dennie Murphy's Daughter Nell.

Just down the street a block or two
Lives Murphy's daughter Nell:
Her hair is fair, her eyes are blue,
Indeed, she's quite a belle;
She smiles on me whene'er we meet,
She has my heart and hand complete,
And when work is done I start and run
My Nell to meet.
Dennie Murphy's daughter Nell
Waits for me after tea:
She knows well, she dare not tell
That she's engaged to me.
But one of these days,
When I get a raise,
The boy that she loves so well
Will marry Dennie Murphy's daughter Nell.
The old man says his daughter Nell
Can never marry me;
Says, she must wed a howling swell,
That's rich and up in "Q."
But on his Neil I've got first call,
She says it's me or none at all.
And last night she said we will be wed
Some time this fall.-Chorus.
