And in his jealousy he cried: "I'll never call again;
I now am thoroughly convinced that you've been fooling me;
Your heart is with another, so my face no more you'll see."

My heart, although you doubt it, loves no other one but you."
He left the maid, then went and found his old companion Jack,
Who when he heard the story said: "Take my advice, go back, for

The first sweetheart is the best of all,
Sweet are the mem'ries she'll recall,
She is the dearest, she is sincerest,
The first sweetheart is the best of all.

And so the lad to ease his pain for other girls would sigh;
He sought in many maids to find the charms he lost in Nell,
But never did he meet with one who pleased him half so well;
He then resolved again to see his old companion Jack,
And ask if he'd arrange it so to Nell he might go back;
She took him to her heart again as in the olden days.
He knows she'll soon be his for life and now be often says:-Refrain.
