WITH A LAUGH LIKE THIS.
Copyright, 1897, by Henry Hudson.
Words by Winnie Black. Music by Henry Hudson.
I know a little maiden with a laugh like this,
Ha, ha, ha, ha. ha, like this;
I thought it would be funny to surprise her with a kiss,
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, a kiss;
I stole upon her gently, when she thought no one was near.
And whispered, oh, so lightly, "here's a kiss for luck, my dear,"
Her answer wasn't gentle, 'twas a smack upon my ear,
Ha, ha, ha, ha, on my ear.
This maiden had a father with a big, loud laugh,
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, loud laugh,
It made me think of donkey or a great big blinded calf,
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, a calf;
I asked him for his daughter on a very chilly day:
Said I, "Old man, speak quickly, for I haven't long to stay."
I felt his answer keenly as I sadly limped away,
Ha, ha, ha, ha, limped away.
