THE HANDKERCHIEF MARKED WITH 'M'
 
div
 
Now I love a dear little maiden, and Mary, sweet Mary by name
I only can meet her on Monday, but she knows that I'm not to blame
By work other nights I'm prevented from meeting my own turtle-dove
But she smiles in my face quite contented when I tell her the tale of my love

Chorus: My Mary is mine alone! she's my Monday fairy
She's the only girl I love, and true to her I'll be
I've got an 'M' on my handkerchief, and when I'm unhappy or weary
It tells my that I am my Mary's young man, and that Mary belongs top me.


I feel broken hearted on Tuesday, my Mary no longer I see
I've only got one consolation, next Monday with her I shall be
But on Wednesday I meet little Mabel, a girl that I fondly adore
It's the day that we call early-closing so we meet at a quarter to four
She knows its the only day on which I get out
Of my true love for her she is never in doubt.

Chorus: My Mabel is mine alone, she's my Wednesday fairy
She's the only girl I love, and true to her I'll be
I've got an 'M' on my handkerchief and when I'm unhappy or weary
It tells me that I am my Mabel's young man and that Mabel belongs to me.


I can't stop to talk about Maudie, my own little Saturday pet
And Marie who meets me on Friday, her kisses I'll never forget
But when I gaze on that initial, their beauties I fondly recall
Oh, and one I've forgotten to mention, on Sunday she's best of them all
My Martha she misses me every night
For she knows I'm at work when I'm out of her sight.

Chorus: My Martha is mine alone, she's my Sunday fairy
She's the only girl I love, and true to her I'll be
I've got an 'M' on my handkerchief
And when I'm unhappy or weary
It tells me that I've got a 'missis' at home
And my missis belongs to me.
