SWEET NELLIE FAY.
Copyright, 1897, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and music by Al H. Wilson,
In a cosy flat across the way there lives a charming miss,
A flirtation we've started and we often toss a kiss,
Her sweet smile's like the sunshine that brightens up the day,
A cunning, rosy, blue-eyed girl is little Nellie Fay.
Sweet Nellie Fay lives over the way,
We flirt ev'ry evening, we flirt ev'ry day:
Her smile has bewitched me, my heart's gone astray,
And sweet Nellie has it in the flat o'er the way.
I meet her ev'ry evening, with her rosy cheeks aglow,
Enchanting and Switching, she's the sweetest girl I know,
For Cupid Is the God of Love I've often heard them say,
I know he shoots his arrows from the flat across the way- Chorus.
