Flirty Love (MacEdward Leach)

There is two young girls are going around,
I'll tell you about them right here in this town;
There's Miss Flossie Whittle, you may know the same,
With Miss Aggie Penney attached to her name.

They're goin' with two fellas right here in this place,
They own that they loves 'em just before their face;
And when they are gone and not far away,
Go flirt with some other that comes in their way.

Oh, Miss Flossie Whittle she keeps up the rule,
The twelfth of July she closes her school;
And she's going home for she cannot stay,
She has letters from Felix, he's feeling okay.

There's another young girl in this place that don't dance,
They say it's the reason she don't get no chance;
It makes her so sad and so awfully glum,
She prays to her God that her Paddy would come.

There's another young girl, I won't speak her name,
She's goin' with a fellow, can't talk very plain;
He'd make a fine soldier in khaki and cap,
When he goes to service sure I'll marry .....
