Ein Girl zu finden ist nicht einfach:


When I was a boy my mother often said to me,

Get married boy and see, how happy you will be,

I have looked all over, but no girlie can I 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 sits a couple old and gray,

Though years have rolled away, their hearts are young to day,

Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eye,

He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, while ev'ning breezes sight,

They're happy as can be, so that's the kind of love for me.
