PRETTY KITTY RILEY.
Copyright, 1897, by Reynolds McKee.
Words and Music by Reynolds McKee.
Down around the corner, by a little store,
There resides a working girl who I most adore;
Her parents are not wealthy, she ain't the tony sort,
But pretty Kitty Riley, she has won my heart.
Pretty Kitty, she's the girl for me,
Irish, stylish, plainly you can see;
Cheeks just like roses, eyes like stars above,
And pretty Kitty Riley, she's the girl I love.
When I make my fortune, then we'll do the grand,
Own a stately mansion, drive a four-in-hand;
But for all this splendor I would not resign
Any part of Kitty's love, for she is mine.-Refrain.
