When that Funny Little Look Comes in Their Eye.
Copyright, 1898, by Hamilton S. Gordon.
Words and Music by Maud Evelyn Moulton.

There is a little girl I know with curly, golden hair,
And rosy cheeks and pretty dimples, too.
She looks just like an angel, but I'd have the boys beware,
For lots of fun is in her eyes so blue.
She'll make you think she loves you. she'll promise to be true,
And so she will until the cash is gone.
Then you'll meet her with another man, an O, 'twill make you sigh,
As you take your last best suit away to pawn.

O the girls are very, very cute,
To get the best of us you bet they try;
Now they can't fool me, I know what they're about.
When that funny little look comes in their eye.

The first time that I met her she was standing at the gate
Of a little cottage house, as I passed by
I looked at her. she looked at me, she never even smiled,
But a funny little look came in her eye.
We went to walk that very night, and O, but she was nice,
So was the pin I wore, stuck in my tie.
I found it gone when she went home, I've never seen it since,
We shall meet in the sweet by and by.- Chorus.

Now. why is it when a man has got a loving little wife
That away from her dear side sometimes he'll roam,
And stay out 'ate and have a time in company with some girl
Who's not as pretty as the wife at home,
Why does he spend his money on the girl and go home "broke,"
And listen to his fond wife sob and sigh?
It's because the poor man can't resist the look I know so well.
That funny little look in that girl's eye.- Chorus.

Just as long as there are pretty girls that act upon the stage,
{Spoken.) [No, they're not obliged to act. they can Just pose.]
There'll be bald heads in the front row, who, I blush to ten, will look
At the girls in tights, Now why do you suppose?
And if they hear a naughty song sung by a pretty girl,
Why is it they encore her so. O why?
I can tell you, while she's singing, she just gives them that queer look,
That funny little look that's in her eye.-Chorus.
