Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve got a pal
He’s got a gal
Ev’rything a little gal should be
Oh how he raves
How he behaves
Just a little love-sick I can see
He doesn;t see her ev’ry day
But if she passes by you’ll hear him say

[Verse 2]
I like my pal
I like his gal
And I like the way she sings his song
Nobody knows
Nobody cares
Just how I seem to get along
But maybe I could smile someday
Oh gee I’d love to let you hear me say

[Chorus]
There she goes on her toes
All dressed up in her Sunday clothes
My best girl
Just like Sweet Rosie O’ Grady
She’s just a sweet little lady
Calls me up now then
Calls me down only when I’m too smart
Since we’ve been acquainted
The church is newly painted
I guess the preacher was wise from the start
What a pal
What a gal
Just as sweet as Frivolous Sal
My best girl.
