GIRLS, GIRLS, BEAUTIFUL GIRLS!

Who is it that makes life worth living for all?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
Who wants a tailor-made gown every fall?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
Who is it 'twixt Heaven and Earth is the link?
Who are the angels on Earth? 'I don't think!'
Who never drove any poor fellow to drink?
Girls, beautiful girls!

Chorus: Beautiful girls, beautiful girls!
There isn't a minute
But what they are in it,
Beautiful girls!
They're diamonds and pearls,
But they take the 'mazuma' do beautiful girls!

Who puts a fortune in silk on her back?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
Who'd give her head for a new seal-skin sack?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
Who has such a horror of all kinds of dirt,
And trembles with fear lest her dress should be hurt.
Then wipes up Broadway with her long trailing skirt?
Girls, beautiful girls!

Chorus: Beautiful girls, beautiful girls!
We buy 'em new dresses,
And then ther caress us;
Beautiful girls!
Our head's full of whirls
At the dress-maker's bills of our beautiful girls.

To whom in a car do you offer your seat?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
And who gives you thanks in a manner so sweet?
Girls, girls, beautiful girls!
If you're looking for thanks, that's no place to apply,
She thinks that to 'mash' her you're going to try.
Who's more apt to give you the cold glassy eye?
Girls, beautiful girls!

Chorus: Beautiful girls, beautiful girls!
We give Laura and Mable
Our seats on the cable.
Beautiful girls!
Away the car whirls,
And you're thrown in the laps of the beautiful girls!
