Give My Love to Nellie Jack

Three years ago since Jack and Joe
Set sail across the foam
Each vowed his fortune he would make
Before returning home
In one short year Jack gained his wealth
And home he did set sail
And just before they shook hands to part
Poor Joe could only say

Give my love to Nellie Jack
And kiss her once for me
The sweetest girl in all this world
Im sure you’ll say is 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

Two years have past and Joe at last
had gained enough for life
And he set sail across the sea
To make sweet Nell his wife
but when he reached his nature shore
A friend to
When on his way he heard them say
That Jack and Nell were wed
He now regrets between sales and [frets]
That he had ever said

When on the street they chanced to meet
Said Joe you selfish elf
The next girl that I learn to love
I”ll kiss her for myself
But all is fair in love they say so since you’ve gone and wed
I’ll not be angry Jack old pal
Once again he said

My Old Pal

Im thinking of you tonight old pal
And wishing that you were here
Im dreaming of the times and the days gone by
When you filled my heart with cheer
I remember the nights when all alone
We sang Sweet Adeline
No other face can take your place
In my heart old pal of mine

The old pals are always the best you see
New friends you can find everyday
But they can’t tell the places
Or ever be like the old pals of yesterday

Im wondering just where you are tonight
And if you ever think of me
It would make my weary heart so light
Sweetheart again your face to see
But in my checkered life I find
Nothing come right it seems
Still you’ll always be a pal of mine
Though it may be only in dreams
