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 By the old mill stream there sit a couple old and grey Though years have rolled away, their hearts are young today Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eye He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, while evening breezes sigh They're as happy as can be, so that's the kind of love for me 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 Oh, I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2014) ******************** As recorded by SPIKE JONES & HIS CITY SLICKERS: I wanna gal just like the gal that married dear old Dad Now she was a pal, and the only gal that Daddy ever had A sweet old fashioned gal with eyes so blue One that loves nobody else but you Yessir, I need a gal just like the gal that married dear old Dad (Musical Break) A sweet old fashioned gal with heart so true One that loves nobody else but you Now Joe's got a gal just like that gal that married his dear old Dad.
