Join hands form a ring, you circle left now while I sing

I Want A Girl (Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad)
 
 

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.

Composed by Harry Von Tilzer.
Lyrics by Will Dillon.
