A Girl Who Loves Mother and Home.
Copyright. 1896, by Dave Marion & Co.
Words and Music by James Sweeney.
I know a fair maiden, she's just seventeen,
She lives but a block here below;
Her friends, boys and girls, have christened her queen,
And the good girl of Rafferty's Row;
There is no other- just her and her mother-
Contented they live all alone;
She works hard all day, keeps the house on her pay,
Does the girl who loves mother and home.
She is Miss Myrtle Clancy, a sweet girl and good,
Loved by the girls and boys in the neighborhood:
It's a pleasure to see her when with her mother alone;
This world would be brighter
If we had more like her.
The girl that loves mother and home.
When it comes Sunday morning, and the clock it strikes eight,
She starts off for church trim and neat;
No boy on the corner for this girl does wait.
But they all tip their hats should they meet.
Now a secret I'll tell, so be sure guard it well:
An engagement ring soon will be shown:
It's easy to guess, you can tell who said yes.
It's the girl who loves mother and home.- Chorus.
