Copyright, 1887, by F. Harding.

A fine little maiden, with beauty o'erladen,
Lives right 'round the corner from me,
She's a face like a fairy, her style's light and airy,
She's a maiden as few you will see;
Her dressing's exquisite, she's every requisite,
And shows them all off to a dot,
I was mashed on this daisy, she had me nigh crazy,
This girl, Mary Ann Kate McDermott.

Mary Ann, Mary Ann,
Mary that lives 'round the corner,
Bright and gay all the day,
Oh, she's a daisy, she drove me nigh crazy;
When she's seen, like a queen,
Stately, majestic is she;
Some call me plucky, but I think I'm lucky,
For Mary is mashed on me.

I met her on Monday, and then on next Sunday
I took her out strolling with me,
She cost me much money, this dear little honey,
She wanted nigh all that she'd see;
On the lake we went rowing, not a wind was then blowing,
I was wet to the skin, for 'twas hot,
She seemed not to worry, but felt very sorry,
This girl, Mary Ann Kate McDermott.-Chorus.

When at last we got started for home and parted,
She bade me a nice, sweet good-day;
Please don't call to-night, sir, there may be a fight, sir,
For my beaux get so mad right away.
I was nearly dumbfounded, like a ship that has grounded,
I scarcely could move from the spot;
She looked for a dandy, and I came in handy,
This girl, Mary Ann Kate McDermott.-Chorus.
