Give My Love to Nell Three years ago since Jack and Joe Set sail across the foam Each vowed a fortune he would gain Before returning home In one short year Jack gained his wealth And started home that day And when the pals shook hands to part Poor Joe could only say. REFRAIN Give my love to Nellie, Jack And kiss her once for me The sweetest girl in all this world I'm 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. Three years had passed when Joe at last Gained wealth enough for life He started home across the foam To make sweet Nell his wife But when he learned that Jack and Nell One year ago had wed With sobs and threats he now regrets That he had ever ever said. REFRAIN They chanced to meet upon the street Joe said, you selfish "ELF" The very next girl I learn to love I'll kiss her for myself But all is fair in love, they say As you have gone and wed I'll not be angry with you pal So once again he said.
