Words and Music by Geo. M. Cohan.

A group of boys were chaffing, on a pleasant summer's day.
They were telling tales and laughing, in a pleasant sort of way,
As they stood there, passed them walking went the mighty city's throng,
While the boys were gaily talking of the girls who went along,
So went on their conversation, when a maid passed, poorly clad,
And the signs of dissipation rested in her features sad,
And as by she went, one of the buys insults he tried to hurl,
When another lad spoke up, and said, "Remember she's a girl."

Because she's not a beauty, she don't deserve a frown,
To protect her is your duty, and not to run her down;
She may not be so pretty, or what you call a "pearl,"
No matter what her faults may be, remember she's a girl.

The way their pal had spoken, all the boys they seemed surprised,
But the silence was not broken, for the lad whom he advised
Kept his eyes upon that maiden 'till she vanished from their sight,
Then with heart so sorrow laden, he said: "Ned, I think you're right,"
And before the group departed, they all shook the hand of Ned,
And as to their homes they Started, thought of what the lad had said.
It is true they all had sisters, and their brains were in a whirl,
For they knew their pal had rightly said, "Remember she's a girl." - Chorus.
