I Want A Girl (Just Like The Girl That Married Dear Old Dad) es una canción compuesta por Harry von Tilzer y escrita por William Dillon. La canción fue publicada en febrero de 1911, y tuvo gran fama en esa época, especialmente tras la actuación del American Quartet.
When I was a boy my mother often said to me
Get married boy and see how happy you will be
I have looked all over, but no girlie can I find,
Who seems to be just like the little girl I have in mind,
I will have to look around until the right one I have found.''
I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old Dad
She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever 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.''
By the old mill stream there sit a couple old and gray,
Though years have rolled away, their hearts are young today.
Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eye,
He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, white evening breezes sigh,
They're as happy as can be, so that's the kind of love for me.''
