ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GIRL LIKE ME?
 
div
 

Gertie was a pretty girl, face so bright and cheery,
But she couldn't find a beau, and her heart grew weary,
Every fellow that she saw, with expression mild-like,
She'd go up to and exclaim, in a manner child-like.

Chorus: Are you looking for a girl like me,
With heart so fond and true?
If you have lots of money,
And a temper sweet as honey,
Then I'm looking for a girl like you.

She came up to London Town and where she was sleeping,
With a lantern to her room, a burgular came creeping.
She woke up but didn't scream, but she eyed him cooly,
Said, 'What are you looking for? Tell me, tell me truly.'

Chorus:

When she went down by the sea, in the least of dresses,
In a bathing tent she stood, drying her fair tresses.
When a head popped through the door, 'Oh!' said charming Getie.
Was she frightened? Oh, dear, no! She said, 'Hello Bertie!'

Chorus:

At a country boarding-house, with a book to grapple,
She climbed up an apple-tree, what a rush on apple!
All the men folk gathered round, gazing at the weather.
Suddenly she cried, 'What brings all you men together?'

Chorus:

I have noticed here tonight, sev'ral chappies peering
Round the house with anxious look, for a form endearing.
There's a chappie in the stalls, nice boy! I don't flatter!
He's been looking round like mad,
'Gussie, what's the matter?'

Chorus:
