SHE'S SO SWEET
 
div
 
I know the sweetest girl in town, sirs
Quite the sweetest of the sweet
And tho' to every move she's down, sirs
Just the sort of girl you'd eat
I see my angel every morning
Meet my seraph every day
Arcade and Regent Street adorning
At night the Music Hall or play.

Chorus: And here's the cry as she goes by
The Dudes and Chappies, glass in eye
By Jove, she's grand, that waist, those feet
And what a hand, oh, ain't she sweet
H.I.J.K.L.M.N.Oh ain't she sweet
She's so sweet, sweet, sweet
She's so sweet, sweet, sweet
H.I.J.K.L.M.N.Oh ain't she sweet
I could kiss her toe
She's so sweet, sweet, sweet.


She'll breakfast at the Continental
At the Cafe Royal she'll dine
With just a biscuit incidental
And a bottle or two of sparkling wine
She 'races' too at lovely 'Sandown'
Acts at Gaiety Matinees
And the way she takes each man down
Really is beyond all praise.

Chorus:

She'll breakfast at the Continental
At the Cafe Royal she'll dine
With just a biscuit incidental
And a bottle or two of sparkling wine
Others slyly whisper 'Brompton'
'Chelsea,' 'Pimlico' so good
One chap says she's Carrie Compton
Of 15 South Bank, St John's Wood.

Chorus:

Now p'haps you'd rather think this beauty
Who's photo everywhere you'll find
Knows well that little word called 'duty'
And to real affection is not blind
And spite of all this envious rumour
She lives a pure and blameless life
And will, if I can, in the humour
One day catch her, be my wife.

Chorus:
