GIVE MY LOVE TO NELL
Three years ago when Jack and Joe Set sail across the foam Each vowed a fortune he would gain Before returning home
In one short year Jack gained his wealth And started home that day When the pals shook hands to part Poor Joe could only say.
Give my love to Nellie, Jack
And kiss her once for me
The sweetest firl in all this world
I’m sure you'll say tis she
Treat her kindly, Jack, old pal
And tell her I am well
His parting words were don’t forget
To give my love to Nell.
One year had passed
When Joe at last gained wealth enough for life
Set sail for home across the foam
To make sweet Nell his wife
But when he learned that Jack and Nell
One year ago had wed
With thoughts and threats he now regrets That he had ever said.
They chanced to meet upon the street Joe says you selfish elf The very next girl I learn to love I’ll kiss her for myself But all is fair in love they say And you have gone and wed I’ll not be angry with you pal So once again he said.
