A crowd of boys that stand around near Hester and Canal,
And Bill Magee was the only one that had a Sunday gal.
The other boys were jealous, and they'd It'll him that she'd flirt.
Then Bill Magee would sing out when his feelings they would hurt:
She might flirt with others, still she loves but me;
The merry twinkle in her eye has caused much jealousy;
If she says a thing she means it, so contented I will be;
She might flirt with others, still she loves but me.
One day he called upon her and he asked her if 'twas true;
Her answer came hark, "Darling Will, I love none else but you."
The next night on the corner, when they told him the same thing.
he knew that they were jealous, and he once again did sing:--Refrain.
