Title
The poor gal didn't know, you know
Additional title: But the poor Gal didn't know, you know, She hadn't been in New York long, And yet she is twenty one years, if an hour, And she ought to know right from wrong. [first line of chorus]
Additional title: Oh, she was a girl, very simple and mild, Her equal you never could find, She didn't know beans, she was just like a child, And one of the innocent kind. [first line]
