Words by Harry Dunkel. Music by Fred Hy Lands.

My girl's an old-fashioned girl-she says
in society she's out of place,
An old-fashioned girl with womanly ways,
And a winsome and womanly face,
A girl who is innocent, modest and sweet,
who is sensible, earnest and true,
The kind that will surely be obsolete
in another short year or two.

She's only an old-fashioned girl, you see.
And not in the least up to date.
But she is the kind of a girl for me.
The kind that I want for a mate.
I know it is very old-fashioned to say
Your girl is a saint from above,
But I own I am proud of her old-fashioned way,
And proud of her old-fashioned love.

She's not a girl who aspires to fame,
She does not ape man in her dress,
She does not read books that have a bad name,
Nor herald her views in the press,
She doesn't use slang or her manners forget.
Nor loudly expound Woman's Rights;
She shuns all the fads of the fashionable set.
And home is her great delight.- Chorus.
