The Baltimore Girls

Line
Melody - "Dearest Mae!"
Line

Oh the Girls of dear old Baltimore,
So beautiful and fair,
With eyes like diamonds sparkling,
And richly flowing hair.
Their hearts are light and cheerful,
And their spirits ever gay,
The Girls of dear old Baltimore,
How beautiful are they.

2. They smile when we are happy,
When we are sad they sigh,
When anguish wrings our bosoms,
The tear they gently dry,
Oh happy is this city that owns their tender sway,
The Girls of dear old Baltimore,
How beautiful are they,

3. They are like the lovely flowers,
In summer time that bloom,
On the sportive breezes shedding,
Their choice and sweet perfume,
Our eyes and hearts delighting,
With their fanciful array,
The Girls of dear old Baltimore,
How beautiful are they.

4. Then ever like true patriots,
May we join both heart and hand,
To protect our lovely maidens
Of this our down trod land,
And that heaven may ever bless them,
We'll all devoutly pray,
The Girls of dear old Baltimore,
How beautiful are they.
