8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
When I was a boy my mother often 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 will have to look around until the right one I have found.
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.
