The Harmless Little Girlie with the Downcast Eyes.
Copyright, 1896, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by Hugh Morton. Music by Gustave Kerker.

I know a little girl who is very, very shy-
Be careful of the girl that's shy;
She goes about so modestly with downcast eyes-
Be careful of the downcast eye.
She wears, upon her forehead, a tiny baby curl-
Be careful of the tiny baby curl:
And everybody says she is a harmless little girl-
Be careful of the harmless little girl.

Refrain.
There are all sorts of girls, there is ev'ry kind of girl;
Some of them are foolish, and some are very wise.
You can trust them all, no doubt, but you might as well look out
For the harmless little girlie with the downcast eyes.

I met a little lady at a sunny seashore place-
Be careful of the seashore place;
You'd say she was a portrait of innocence and grace-
Be careful of the innocence and grace;
On Monday she was blushing like a piece of peachy fruit-
Be careful of the little peachy fruit:
On Thursday she had nailed me in a breach-of-promise suit-
Be careful of the "breach-of-promise" suit.-Refrain.

I met a lovely lady in a lonely widow's weeds-
Be careful of the widow's weeds;
She looked a modest angel, in a crown of jet And beads-
Be careful of the jet and beads.
We sat about together and sipped the bubbling wine-
Be careful of the bubbling wine.
'Twas six when first I met her, she proposed to me at nine-
Be careful or you'll be number nine.

Refrain.
There are all sorts of girls, there is every kind of girl;
Some of them are foolish, and some are very wise.
You can trust them all, no doubt, but you might as well look out
For the weeping little widow with the downcast eyes.
