Adapted by Monroe H. Rosenfeld.

I love a girl, and for her sake most anything I'd do,
But all her folks they seem to be a very selfish crew;
She's quite a Cinderella, whilst they lead such lazy lives.
To-day her little brother wouldn't help her clean the knives.

I'd have done It for her, glad to get the chance;
I'd do it And I wouldn't care a rap;
If she'd only said the word. I'd have done it like a bird,
For I always was a very willing chap.

She told me that the other day her parents went away.
Up to the country where they have their usual holiday,
They left her all alone at home and just to think of this
They went away and wouldn't even give the girl a kiss.-Chorus.

Last night she came from theatre and was so tired out
She couldn't take her fin'ry off-her sisters stood about.
And tho' they saw that by herself her dress she couldn't doff.
They wouldn't even help the girl to take her bustle off. -Chorus.

My little girl, not long ago, began to grow quite stout,
So Stout, indeed, 'tis often hard for her to get about;
Last night she stooped and bent in vain, her heart was very blue,
For not a soul was kind enough to tie her little shoe.-Chorus.

Her father never liked her from the day she was a little child;
If ever she went near him. it would almost drive him wild;
He never kissed or fondled her as children ought to be.
And always shamefully refused to take her on his knee.-Chorus.

At last she got disgusted with that kind of life, and so
She thought she as a housemaid in a family would go,
But sad misfortune was her lot, 'twas not the modern style,
They wouldn't even take her for one little month on trial.-Chorus.
