BILLY DALY'S GIRL.
Copyright. 1896, by Harry Freeman.
Written and Composed by Harry Freeman.
Near the old ward grammar school, lives a bright-eyed lass;
Should you chance to go that way, maybe you II see her pass.
Just a glance from Katie's eyes would set your heart whirl;
The boys love her so, yet all of them know that she's Billy
After school is over, after work is done,
Just outside the school-yard gate, they'd gather one by one;
All the boys have sweethearts, each a precious pearl,
But none of them compare with Billy Daly's girl.
Ev'ry morning, rain or shine, last at half-past eight,
Down by Uncle Riley's store, Billy would wait for Kate.
Then she greets him with a smile, and off to school they go;
It's plain to be seen, she's as proud as a queen, for she's
Billy's girl, you know.
