In a cosey little cottage dwelt a maiden young and fair,
The idol of a home, her parents' pride.
So contented And so happy, for the old folks she did care
Until a sweetheart lured her from their side.
'Twas the old tale oft repeated, of a loving, trusting maid,
Of broken-hearted parents left alone,
Of a love that was discarded, and a sad appeal for aid,
Another girl who left a happy home.

Just another girl who left a happy home,
Just another girl must struggle all alone.
Just another broken vow, just another homeless now,
Just another girl who left a happy home.

There's a maiden sad and lonely, who has wandered back again
To see the old folks in the dear old home,
She has stopped beside the window with her face pressed to the pain.
And from her lips there falls a bitter moan,
There she sees her dear old mother, with her hair now turned to gray.
Her father's head in shame is bending low.
In a voice so sad she murmurs, "O, if I could only stay,
But I must leave, so they will never know.-Refrain.
