PRETTY MAUDE GILHOOLEY.
Copyright, 1897, by Coupon Music Pub. Co.
Words by Chas. F. Pidgin. Music by G. M. Blandford.

Pretty Maude Gilhooley was a darling little girl,
Tha kind that keeps a fellow's heart in a constant fret and whirl;
We drove together, swam together, and biked together, too,
But I couldn't get sweet Maude to say "John Henry, I love you."

Chorus.
But I won her in the moonlight, as we strolled upon the sand,
My good right arm was round her waist. I clasped her tiny hand:
"Be mine," I cried, "or I'll jump in and wed Old Neptune's daughter,"
"I'm yours," she said, "I'll save your life, you never did like water."

Pretty Maude Gilhooley my dear wife has been a year,
That I'll be bankrupt very soon is my constant dread and fear;
She dresses in the style that's latest, her hats are works of art,
But yet I am not a happy man, my darling has no heart

Chorus.
Since I won her in the moonlight, as we strolled upon the sands,
My good right arm was round her waist, I clasped her tiny band;
"Be mine," I cried, "or I'll jump In and wed Old Neptune's daughter."
"I'm yours," she said," I'll save your life, you never did like water."

Pretty Maude Gilhooley Is a fashion plate no more,
The banks all burst and I did, too, and we went through Poverty's door;
She washes clothes and sand I shovel, the water flows like beer,
Be rich man again? not If I could, she never was so dear-2d Chorus.
