Little Annie Rooney 
(written and composed by Michael Nolan in 1890):

A winning way, a pleasant smile,
Dressed so neat but quite in style,
Merry chaff your time to wile
Has little Annie Rooney.
Every evening, rain or shine,
I make a call 'twixt eight and nine
On her who shortly will be mine,
Little Annie Rooney.


She's my sweetheart, I'm her beau;
She's my Annie, I'm her Joe,
Soon we'll marry, never to part,
Litle Annie Rooney is my sweetheart!
The parlor's small, but neat and clean,
And set with taste so seldom seen,
And you can bet the household queen
Is little Annie Rooney.
The fire burns cheerfully and bright,
As a family circle round each night
We form, and everyone's delight
Is little Annie Rooney.


We've been engaged close on a year,
The happy time is drawing near,
I'll wed the one I love so dear,
Little Annie Rooney.
My friends declare I'm in a jest,
Until the time comes will not rest,
But one who knows its value best
Is little Annie Rooney.
