SHE CAN'T BE BEAT.
Copyright, 1898, by The Zeno Mauvais Music Co.
Written and Composed by Jus. H. Marshall and Walter Wolff.
Boys, congratulate me, my heart to-night is light,
For Nell, my girl. Just promised me she would become my wife.
Admirers she has plenty, to win her I feel proud.
To know that I'm the lucky one from out of all that crowd.
When we Stroll upon the street,
All eyes are gazing on Nellie, my darling, so nice and sweet.
She's my loved one. and dressed so neat;
Her eyes are so lender, her waist is so slender, she can't be beat.
Twelve months we are married, our love is sweet to see,
And Nellie's time is occupied with baby on her knee.
She talks about it daily, she cures for it at night;
My home is quite a paradise, with baby, self and wife.- Chorus.
Is married life a failure? I've heard it oft discussed,
And when I hear me subject broached, it fills me with disgust.
I know when I am happy, to see my wife's a treat;
At baking cakes and biscuits, too, I know she can't be beat.- Chorus.
