Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 52
A 'FRISCO GIRL.
Copyright, 1896, by The Zano Mauvais Music Co.
Written and Composed by Jas. H. Marshall and Walter Wolff.
A San Francisco girl am I, and only plnin at that;
I've been to Monte Carlo, and have played at baccarat
In Paris, London and Berlin And far away Moscow-
I must admit they're very fine, but give me dear 'Frisco.
Where flowers are blooming the year 'round and sunshine's bright;
Where girls are beauties to gaze on in broad daylight,
For at night-time or daytime, or winter or summer,
You'll see pretty girls on the street,
For 'Frisco, you are quite a wonder,
And can't be beat.
Now Eastern folks will tell us that we are away out West,
And say that we're behind the times in every thing that's best;
That might be true in some respects, not everything, l swear-
For singers, actors, fighters too, they come from you know where.-Chor.
We take delight In out-door sports-swimming, rowing, and the like;
Lawn tennis, Goff, and other games, likewise the dear old bike.
We visit the race-track at times, if only for a lark-
Returning home, we take the reins, drive through our famous park.- Cho.
