LITTE KITTIE RILEY.
Copyright, 1897, by Geo. A. Cragg.
Words and Music by Geo. A, Cragg.
Just around the corner in a quiet little home,
There lives sweet Kitty Riley with her mother all alone;
There is no Brussels carpet, no paintings rich and rare,
'Tis just a scene of home, sweet home, and you are welcome there.
Little Kitty Riley is the girl that I adore,
The girl that I would marry and love forever more;
A perfect bunch of sweetness, the soul of pride and neatness;
No girl can take the place of Kitty Riley.
I am often waiting while my Kitty passes by,
To catch a ray of sunshine from the corner of her eye;
Though she is not an heiress or girl of high degree,
But just a simple working girl yet good enough for me. -Chorus.
