I've wandered this world over for ten long years or more,
I've met both youth and beauty, and rich girls by the score;
I've seen them at their parties and fancy balls so fine,
Bedecked in jewels gandy and drinking costly wine;
But in an humble cottage, in a quiet part of town,
There lives my sweetheart Molly without kindred or renown:
She knows what's pure and holy, and toils from morn till tea;
You may have your wealth and fashion, but she's the girl for me.
Molly's the girl for me, Molly's the girl for me,
With eyes ever bright and heart always light,
And true to her I'll be.

You can see her ev'ry morning, just at break of day,
With basket on her arm, then to work she wends her way;
She's always bright and cheerful and never once complains
Of her sad lot and hardships, but true to home remains.
And after work is over she hastens to her home,
Where she e'er finds a welcome from mother who's alone;
And there a pleasant evening awaits me after tea:
She's but a plain dear shop girl, my Molly, the girl for me
She is my joy and pride, she soon will be my bride;
Though without fine laces, she has such graces,
She's just the girl for me.
