MOLLIE AND I.

Words and Music by Herbert H. Taylor.
In a quaint country village, not far from the shore,
Stands a neat little cottage I have and adore,
And each day that I pass it I love it the more,
For in that little collage lives Mollie,
Now Mollie's a girl 'tis a pleasure to meet,
She's a kind word for all and a smile always sweet,
And she loves all the boy- And the girls on the street,
And the boys and the girls all love Mollie.
Mollie O'Moore is the girl I prefer:
Mollie loves me, and I know I love her:
In another small cottage we'll dwell by and by,
Always merry and happy, Mollie and I.
In that cot by the seaside, with luxuries few,
Where the trees are in had and the summer skies blue,
And the flowers of sweet fragrance besprinkled with dew,
Draw their sweetness from my sweeter Mollie.
In perfect contentment, this sweet little lass
Will sit. at the door, and whenever you pass
You will find there is always a pipe and a glass,
And a welcome for you there from Mollie.-Chorus.
