Words by Arthur J. Lamb Music by H W. Petrie.

A man who had an accident, while trav'ling on a train,
Received a shock that stunned his nerves And rendered him insane,
So in a country hospital for many years he lay
Until they thought that he was well, and he was sent away.
His wife and child who thought him dead, lived in a little town.
And through the streets, one summer's day, the man came wand'ring down.
And by a house he saw at play a very pretty child,
And when he said "whose girl are you? "she answered as she smiled:

"I'm mamma's little girl, papa called me Baby Pearl;
Everybody that I see falls right in love with me.
I'm mamma's little girl, papa called me Baby Pearl,
For you see they all love me, I'm mamma's little girl!"

"You're Baby Pearl?" he asked of her, when suddenly she said,
"O there's my pussy run away," and after it she sped.
And I turning out into the road, the sweet child did not heed
The great fire engine that came on, with swift and sudden speed.
The man saw all-a sudden run, his life, his all he braved -
From underneath the horses' heels the little one he saved.
When, light'ning like, he knew the truth, she was his own sweet child.
he said, "I know whose girl you are," and she said as she smiled:- Chorus.
