[Verse 1]
Said she, “my dear, it seems so queer,
I can’t please you at all,
You say you’re hurt, because I flirt,
Let other fellows call.
I bead my eyes,
I act so wise,
My manners are too bold;
What girl would do, please tell me do?
He said “that’s eas’ly told.”

[Chorus]
Any little girl, that’s a nice little girl, is the right little girl for me.
She don’t have to look like a girl in a book,
If a good cook she should be.
She don’t have to wear rats in her hair,
Or a straight front X. Y. Z.,
Any little girl, that’s a nice little girl, is the right little girl for me.

[Verse 2]
Miss Newlywed, to hubby said,
In a Pullman parlor car,
“I’m going out, to look about Just sit right where you are.”
She did not come, he said, at one,
“Please porter find my bride.”
“She left you flat, who shall I get?”
Then Newlywed replied.

[Chorus]
