"I Want a Girl Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad"

I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old Dad.
She was a pearl, and the only girl that Daddy every had;
A good old fashioned girl
with heart so true,
One who loves nobody else but you;
I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old Dad.
