TWO LITTLE DOLLS.
Copyright, 1897, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Fred. J. Hamlll.
Two little dolls in a nurs'ry lay.
As they were left by a child tired of play;
And one was a girl from Chinaland,
And the other a boy from fair Japan.
As he turned his head from side to side.
He looked at the girl, then softly sighed,
"I have loved you for ever so long:"
Thus spoke the Jap to the maid from Hong Kong.
Ting-ling-a-ling, ting-ling-a-ling, gaily, sweetly, they did sing,
Ting-ling-a-ling, ting-ling-a-ling, and their voices loud did ring;
Ting-ling-a-ling, ting-ling-a-ling, gaily, sweetlv. both did sing;
And the funny little Jap didn't care a rap, only for the maid from China.
They loved and courted the whole long day.
Sweet were the words that the boy did say
To the dear little girl from Chinaland.
She shook her head at the boy from Japan.
Then wisely said, "Now, don t tease me so,
For I'm quite old enough to know
What to do, and when, as well,"
Replied the maid to this Japanese swell.-Chorus.
