Words by John Ernest McCann. Music by Victor Herbert.

In an alley, me and Nancy live in houses side by side:
We were boy and girl together, and she is to be my bride;
I'm not solid with the neighbors, so they two to part:
And they're telling my sweet Nancy that I want to break her heart;
Sweet Nancy, you're my fancy: do not heed the neighbors' talk;
Sweet Nancy, only fancy, some day we may own New York;
Sweet Nancy, none can fancy how I love you night and day;
Sweet Nancy, my own fancy; don't mind what the neighbors say.

Every Sunday me and Nancy go up town to Central Park:
We pretend the park's the country, coming home When it is dark:
Then I leave her on her door-step, my hand holding her hand tight:
If the neighbors should be looking, then I softly say "Good night!"
Sweet Nancy, you're my fancy, etc.

When we're married, me and Nancy, far up town will go for good;
Say good-bye to alley neighbors-that is fully understood;
Every day will then be Sunday, circled by a plain gold ring;
And when we are old und feeble, then this dear old song I'll sing:
Sweet Nancy, you're my fancy, etc.
