New York girls 
Language: English 
As I came down the Bow'ry one ev'ning in July
I met a maid who asked my trade, and a sailor John said I
 Then away you Santy, my dear Annie,
 Then away you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?
 Fa la la, etc.

To Tiffany's I took her, I did not mind expense
I bought her golden earrings, they cost me fifty cents

She said, "You lime-juice sailor, now see me home you may."
But when we reached her cottage door, she unto me did say,
  "Fa la la," etc.
