There's a Girl in the World for Us All.
Copyright, 1896, by Gagel Brothers.
Words and Music by W. C. Davies.
Two friends quarreled one day
About a young girl called Mary;
Tom loved her dearly and Jack did the same,
But he was a little contrary:
Mary told Tom that she loved him the best,
And promised that she'd be his wife:
When Jack heard of this in a passion he flew.
Said: "Our friendship, Tom, ceases for life!"
"Don't be angry with me, Jack,
Because I have won Mary;
Come, let us be friends again;
Don't be so contrary;
You tried to win her I know;
She loved me best after all;
Shake hands and be friends, and remember," said Tom,
"There's a girl in the world for as all."
Said Jack: "I'll go away
Since you've won the heart of Mary."
"Don't go away, Jack, for I'm still your friend;
Why are you so awful contrary:
Soon little Mary and I will be wed
In the church that stands over the way:
Now promise me, Jack, that my friend still you'll be."
Tom then held out his hand and did say:-Refrain.
