Air-"Girl with the Naughty Wink."
Sung by Miss Anna Lloyd in "The American Lillputians."
By James H. Snyder, Jr.

Dare's gone to be a gallus time about dis town to-night,
De alley on de 'casion will be ablaze of light;
For little Mickey Dugan de kid, you knows him all.
He's got de invitations to the Badley-Smartin's ball.
We're goin' in a body along wid Mickey, see!
We'll be de only ripe fruit dat hangs upon de tree:
No doubt we'll meet old Chancey and Astorbilts, but say!
De alley will be de real thing, dey got to come our way.

He is the real thing, de yaller-yaller kid,
Can't do widout him, in fact, dey never did;
He's known, well known wherever grass is green,
All right, he's bright, And fit for any queen;
When we get there, well, we ain't got much to say,
Git up early, read the papers the next day;
They'll hit you, fit you when you read our style,
And that's no dream of Coney Isle.

Now Mickey's gone to beat 'em wid dere ancient style of dress;
I don't tink dey can tie me wid dis one, well, I guess
Dey may ware robes of purple and other tings dat's up,
Dey'll never beat de yaller kid wid all dere fancy stuff;
Dere's little Chimmy Hogan and Jennie Doyle so fair,
Casey and de rest of them, and you will see me dare;
You talk about yer dancing, just watch us take de floor,
We'll show dem Hogan's Alley dat dey never seen before.- Chorus.
