New York Girls

As I walked down through Chatham Street,
A fair maid I did meet.
She asked me to see her home.
She lived in Blecker Street.

And away, Santy, my dear Annie.
Oh, you New York girls,
Can you dance the polka?

And when we got to Blecker Street,
e stopped at forty four.
Her mother and her sister there,
To meet me at the door.

Chorus

And when I got inside the house,
The drinks were passed around.
The liquor was so awful strong,
My head went round and round.

Chorus

And then we had another drink,
Before we sat to eat,
The liquor was so awful strong,
I quickly fell asleep.

Chorus

And when I awoke next morning,
I had an aching head.
There I was Jack all alone,
Stark naked in my bed.

Chorus

My gold watch and my pocket book,
And lady friends were gone.
And there I was Jack all alone,
Stark naked in my room.

Chorus

On looking round this little room,
There’s nothing I could see.
But a woman’s shift and apron,
That were no use to me.

Chorus

With a flour barrel for a suit of clothes,
Down Cherry Street forlorn.
Till Martin-Churchill took me in,
And sent me round Cape Horn.

Chorus
