Oh when I was a boy and a pretty little boy,
With my little curly head of hair so sandy, O,
All the damsels used to cry,
What a funny rogue was I,
And they christened me the pretty little dandy, O.
But when I older grew, and something better knew
Than sucking lollipops and sugar-candy, O,
Why, I was so spruce and gay,
That the ladies used to say,
Oh! the pretty little fellow is a dandy, O.
Oh and then to end all strife I did get a little wife,
With a pretty little waist, so hand, O,
And a lazy boots am I,
That she sings me lullaby,
Says I'm a good for nothing dandy, O.
