My Little Girl

My Little Girl

Year 1915

  First Verse
I write these lines to tell you that I'm sorry I Left home, because I'm all alone, why did you let me roam Some one put the jinx on me, I'm up against it strong, I'm out of work and so I wrote a song the first verse dear is very sweet, because it speaks of you, I'm sending you the chorus, read it through.

Second Verse
The second verse is not complete, I cannot rhyme the part, That goes with aching heart, but I was never smart you know that the chorus is the part that must be heard, and now I've got a job to rhyme that word now if this song should make a hit, I'll marry you in June, and if it don't there'll be no honeymoon.

Chorus
My little girl you know I love you and I long for you each day my little girl I'm dreaming of you though you're many miles away I see the lane down in wildwood where you promised to be true my little girl I know you're waiting and I'm coming back to you.

  First Verse
Since we first met, my heart's been set in winning your love some day; your eyes of blue, show you'll be true, if cupid will lead the way. You golden hair, 'tis not rare, seems different from all the rest; I've liked a score, but I think more and more that you're by far the best.

Second Verse
'Tis true, they say, that some fine day, your fate you will meet at last; now if that's so, then I will know that day has come for me just passed. For I can see, you have won me, and wouldn't it be right fine, if I but knew I could only win you, to tell me you'll be mine.

Chorus
I've taken a liking to you, yes you, that's true, there's something about you that charms, your smile, your style, in all this wide world there's but few, like you, to woo, so tell me you may learn to like me someday, for I've taken a liking to you.
