Original text and translations
(second chorus not used)
Little Lilly was oh! so silly and shy
And all the fellows knew, she wouldn't bill an coo;
Ev'ry single night some smart fellow would try
to cuddle up to her, But she would cry:
"MA, he's making eyes at me!
MA, he's awful nice to me!
MA, he's almost breaking my heart,
I'm beside him, Mercy! Let his conscience guide him!
MA, he wants to marry me, Be my honey bee.
Ev'ry minute he gets bolder, Now he's leaning on my sholder,
MA, he's kissing me!"
Lilly was so good, ev'rybody could tell,
You'd never see her roam, She'd always stay at home;
All the neighbors knew little Lilly too well,
For when the boys would call, They'd hear her yell.
