By Harry B. Marshall.

The popular theme in the songs of to-day
Is the girls, dear girls.
And the writers have told us in 'most ev'ry way
Of these priceless pearls.
Some tell us they're beautiful, charming and good,
And others they're naughty, wilful and rude,
Just a word on this subject, I beg to intrude,
Ob, girls, lovely girls.

Girls, girls, lovely girls, why do you treat as so:
You say that you love us, but 'most always bluff us.
And in tragic tones bid us go, shake us for some other beaux.

The girls of to-day, they are wonders Indeed,
These girls, dear girls:
And what an unmerciful chase they as lead,
You girls, wicked girls.
They tell us we're awfully nice and all that,
Then give as the shake at the very first spat,
And tell us that they have all turned us down flat,
Oh, girls, wicked girls.-Chorus.

When we take you out on a nice quiet lark,
Oh. you girls, dear girls,
Or take you out riding, with as, in the park,
Oh, girls, lovely girls.
You wear a man's hat, collar, necktie and shirt,
And when on a wheel you wear bloomers and flirt.
I suppose in a year, that you won't wear a skirt,
You girls, up-to-date girls.- Chorus.

And when to a supper we ask you to go,
Oh, you girls, dear girls,
Quite sweetly you smile, and you never say no,
Oh, girls, foxy girls.
You smoke cigarettes, and you drink beer and wine,
While cock-tails and mixed drinks are right in your line,
And end up by calling us your "Baby mine."
Oh, girls, lovely girls.- Chorus.

And when a poor man falls In love, overhead,
With a girl, dear girl,
And at night, walks the streets, when he should be in bed.
For a girl, pretty girl,
Then when he proposes, she murmurs, oh, dear,
It's awfully sudden, you make me feel queer,
Although for this question she's waited all year,
Ob, girls, lovely girls. - Chorus.
