Words by Harry B. Smith. Music by Ludwig Englander

I know a little maiden who is good, so very good,
That she always does exactly as she's told.
She's never naughty, no, she would not be so if she could.
She has big blue eyes and curly hair of gold,
She'll never linger longer in the evening by the gate,
Because she thinks perhaps her dear mamma may scold.
Altho' a nice young fellow may beseech of her to wait,
Oh, no! she always does exactly as she's told.

With a downcast eye and a manner shy,
This little maid is worth her weight in gold;
If they tell her things are right, that is sufficient for her quite.
And she always does exactly as she's told.

One day a young man told her, "You must meet me, dear, to-night,
And she always does exactly as she's told.
Of course she went and met him, for be told her it was right,
Tho' she would not, for the whole wide world, be bold.
He said, "It's right that I should take of kisses just a few,
And it is wrong for little girls to be too cold.
Moreover it's the proper thing for you to kiss me, too,
And she always does exactly as she's told.- Chorus.

Her mother always said that she should never taste of wine,
For a young girl's feelings are not well controlled.
Her dear mamma said, "Champagne, dear, is hardly in your line,"
And she always does exactly ax she's told.
One night her escort told her, "Just one glass will do you good.
And so she took a single glass so bright and cold,
Then she finished up the bottle, for he told her that she should.
And she always does exactly as she's told.- Chorus.
