When a pretty girl goes by
There s a glimmer in my eye,
Just a flicker of delight
At so glad and fair a sight;
' Youth and beauty and romance,
These are what my roving glance
Find in every curve and curl
Of a passing pretty girl,
And my heart is beating high

Words to'flush that peach-blow cheek
But my much-adoring gaze
