I have a girlie that really is truck on a moving picture show,
I take her out every night in the week and down to the movies we go
She’s crazy ‘bout Biographs as she can be
She likes all the Pathes and Lubins she sees,
And the Vitograph pictures they fill her with glee
Now she is the girlies for me.

She’s my moving picture girl,
She has set me in a whirl.
Most every night when the clock strikes eight
To the movies we go; you bet she’s never late.
She has moving picture eyes
And I claim her as a prize
She’s my moving picture Moving Picture Girl.

This little girlie ‘bout pictures doth dream when she’s asleep in bed,
Edison Seligs and Essanay too,
Are all she can get through her head It’s Kalem for breakfast, it’s Cines for tea When I speak of love she won’t listen to me,
But when I mention movies you just ought to see the smile she hands out to me.
