A Boy Without a Sweetheart.
Copyright, 1897, by Wm. B. Gray.
Words and Music by Geo. M Cohan.
There once was a lad so lonely and sad,
For he had no sweetheart to cheer him,
A maiden so fair, with black curly hair,
With no beau, she lived very near him,
The rest of the boys and girls had their joys,
And went with the ones they love best,
While the maiden and lad would wish that they had
Some sweetheart like all of the rest.
A boy without a sweetheart, a girl without a beau,
They used to meet upon the street, but never spoke, you know,
'Till some one introduced them, and in a week or so,
The boy he had a sweetheart, and the girl she had a beau.
No more will this lad be lonely and sad,
For he has a sweetheart to cheer him;
This maiden so fair, with black curly hair,
It seems that she ever is near him.
Since then they've been wed. and I've heard tt said,
That now to her apron there clings
A dear baby boy, who listens with joy.
While ma rocks the cradle and sings:-Refrain.
