I WANT A GIRL JUST LIKE THE GIRL THAT MARRIED DEAR OLD DAD
 
div
 
When I was a boy, at school, my Mother said to me
'Get married, boy, and see, how happy you will be'
I have looked all over, but, no girlie can I find
Who seems to be just like the little girl I have in mind
I shall have to look around until the right girl I have found.

Chorus: I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad
She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever had
A good old-fashioned girl with heart so true
One who loves nobody else but you
I want a girl, just like the girl, that married dear old Dad.


By the old mill stream there dwells a couple old and grey
Though years have rolled away, their hearts are young today
Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eyes
He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, while evening breezes sigh
They're as happy as can be, so that's the kind of love for me.

Chorus: I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad
She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever had
A good old-fashioned girl with heart so true
One who loves nobody else but you
I want a girl, just like the girl, that married dear old Dad.
