Since Mamie Brady Moved Up Town.
Copyright, 1895, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by William Jerome. Music by Andrew Mack.
Listen, and I'll sing all about a little lady
By the name of Mamie Brady; she's a dream, and no mistake.
Mamie is a "corker," and a thoroughbred New Yorker;
But she broke my heart, for she gave me the shake.
Say, boys, I'm feelin' very blue, my heart is broke in two,
And I don't know what to do;
For where once I got a smile now I only get a frown,
Since Mamie Brady, my steady lady, moved up town.
Down in the Fourth Ward Mame and I were raised together;
We were birds of the same feather, and a ring I bought her, see.
Talk about a "looker," why, I never would have shook her.
And I never thought that Mamie she'd shake me.- Chorus.
