Words and Music by the late Wm. H. Delehanty.

I'm happy as the day is long.
My mind is never easy,
No matter whether right or wrong,
You must not think me rude;
For love, it is the burden of my song,
With joy I'm almost crazy,
And if perchance I sing or dance,
You must not think me rude.
And if perchance I sing or dance,
I hope I don't intrude.

Oh, dear, don't you wish that you were me?-(Symph.)
I feel just as happy as a big bumble bee;-(Symph.)
I was walking by your door, when I heard the music sweet,
My heart with joy filled over, And I couldn't keep my feet.
So keep the music ringing, as it makes me feel so good;
And if I make one little break, you must not think me rude.
And if I make one little break, I hope I don't intrude.

At a fancy ball the other night,
Myself and little Daisy,
We kept it up till broad daylight,
We felt so awful good;
And Daisy looked so fair and bright
She set the men all crazy,
And when they'd ask her for to dance,
She'd say, "I wish I could."
Then I would say, in a careless way,
I hope I don't intrude.-Chorus.

Oh, the happy day is drawing near
When I shall wed my Daisy,
The Summer time, when all is fair,
And flowrets scent the wood;
When the merry birds are singing clear.
My mind will then be easy;
In happiness and perfect bliss,
I shall not then act rude,
And if you come to see our home,
We'll say*'' You don't intrude."-Chorus.
