TWO LITTLE GIRLS IN BLUE
Sung by: Unknown
Click here to listen to the original recording
In a locket he wore for years.
His nephew asked him the reason why
That picture caused him tears.
He said, "I'll tell you the story, lad, A story that’s sad, but true.
Your father and I, at school one day,
Met two little girls in blue."
Chorus: "Two little girls in blue, lad, Two little girls in blue. We went together in all kinds of weather;
We learned to love them true.
One little girl in blue, lad,
Won your father’s heart.
She is your mother; I married the other;
But now we have drifted apart."
"That picture is one of those girls, lad;
To me she was once a wife.
I thought her untrue, and we quarreled, lad,
Then parted that night for life.
A fancy of jealousy wronged a heart,
A heart that was good and true.
No better girls ever lived than they,
Those two little girls in blue."
