Lyrics WHEN I WAS A BOY
MY OTHER OFTEN SAID TO ME,
“GET MARRIED BOY
AND SEE HOW HAPPY YOU WILL BE.”
I HAVE LOOKED ALL OVER,
BUT NO GIRLIE I CAN FIND,
WHO SEEMS TO BE
JUST LIKE THE LITTLE GIRL
I HAVE IN MIND,
I WILL HAVE TO LOOK AROUND
UNTIL THE RIGHT ONE I HAVE FOUND.

I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.
SHE WAS A PEARL
AND THE ONLY GIRL
THAT DADDY EVER HAD,
A GOOD OLD FASHIONED GIRL
WITH HEART SO TRUE,
ONE WHO LOVES NOBODY ELSE
BUT YOU,
I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.

BY THE OLD MILL STREAM
THERE SIT A COUPLE OLD AND GRAY,
THOUGH YEARS HAVE ROLLED AWAY,
THEIR HEARTS ARE YOUNG TODAY.
MOTHER DEAR LOOKS UP AT DAD
WITH LOVE LIGHT IN HER EYE.
HE STEALS A KISS,
A FOND EMBRACE,
WHILE EV'NING BREEZES SIGH,
THEY'RE AS HAPPY AS CAN BE,
SO THAT'S THE KIND OF LOVE FOR ME.

I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.
SHE WAS A PEARL
AND THE ONLY GIRL
THAT DADDY EVER HAD,
A GOOD OLD FASHIONED GIRL
WITH HEART SO TRUE,
ONE WHO LOVES NOBODY ELSE
BUT YOU,
I WANT A GIRL,
JUST LIKE THE GIRL
THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD.

Lyrics ON A SUNDAY MORN
SAT A MAID FORLORN
WITH HER SWEETHEART
BY HER SIDE,
THROUGH THE WINDOWPANE,
SHE LOOKED AT THE RAIN,
WE MUST STAY HOME, JOE,
SHE CRIED,.
THERE'S A PICNIC, TOO,
AT THE OLD POINT VIEW,
IT'S A SHAME IT RAINED TODAY.
THEN THE BOY DREW NEAR,
KISSED AWAY EACH TEAR,
AND SHE HEARD HIM SOFTLY SAY:
:
WAIT TILL THE SUN SHINES, NELLIE,
WHEN THE CLOUDS GO DRIFTING BY.
WE WILL BE HAPPY, NELLIE,
DON'T YOU SIGH.
DOWN LOVER'S LANE WE'LL WANDER,
SWEETHEARTS YOU AND I,.
WAIT TILL THE SUN SHINES, NELLIE,
BYE AND BYE.

HOW I LONG, SHE SIGHED,
FOR A TROLLEY RIDE.
JUST TO SHOW
MY BRAND NEW GOWN.
THEN SHE GAZED ON HIGH
WITH A GLADSOME CRY
FOR THE SUN CAME SHINING DOWN..
AND SHE LOOKED SO SWEET
ON THE BIG FRONT SEAT,
AS THE CAR SPED ON ITS WAY,
AND SHE WHISPERED LOW,
SAY YOU'RE ALL RIGHT, JOE,
YOU JUST WON MY HEART TODAY.

WAIT TILL THE SUN SHINES, NELLIE,
WHEN THE CLOUDS GO DRIFTING BY.
WE WILL BE HAPPY, NELLIE,
DON'T YOU SIGH.
DOWN LOVER'S LANE WE'LL WANDER,
SWEETHEARTS YOU AND I,.
WAIT TILL THE SUN SHINES, NELLIE,
BYE AND BYE.
