Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.

Shure It's little Widow Reilly in the other block above.
Whose husband died a year ago to-day;
She has suitors by the dozen that would take her hand and love.
But who's the one to win her none can say.
There is Casey and McCarty, both clever men and hearty.
And little Flynn, who's not a man at all:
And there's more of them each evening that call on her so pleasing.
And this is how she showed her love for all:

There's Casey wears her husband's coat, the trousers fit McFee.
Her husband's shoes were hardly used, and look well on Magee;
The hat he wore was out of date, she gave It to O'Brien.
And gave to me her heart, did she, that Reilly left behind.

Not a one of them are working, but are looking for a home,
The widow owns her house and plot of ground;
So now Casey and McCarty think they've won her for their own.
Bedad, they go and tell it all around.
Now her husband's clothes they dress in, and none of them is guessing,
But each one thinks he's favored best of all;
For she never told another of what she gave the, other.
But this is how she showed her love for all:- Cho.
