MY PRETTY NELLIE MAY.
Copyright, 1896, by A. M Hall.
Words by B. F. Barnett. Music by Emily Smith.
At the corner of the street dwells the girl that I adore,
So bewitching, fair and sweet, she'll he mine forevermore,
I love her and she loves me, I see her every day,
And very soon my wife she'll be, my pretty Nellie May.
I love her and she loves me,
Soon we will marry, my pretty wife she'll be,
Then we'll live together, nevermore to part,
Then pretty Nellie always will be my sweetheart.
The wedding day's not far away, the boys and girls will all be there,
Happy I'll be that welcome day, when Nellie is my bride so fair;
None could make a better wife, none more true and kind;
She'll help me thro' this world of strife, no better wife could I find.- Ref.
