VERSE 1: Of the girls that I know,/ Sure there's none like my Jo;/ She's as fair as a rosebud in June./ She's the sweetest colleen,/ That this world's ever seen,/ And she lives in my heart like a beautiful dream.
VERSE 2: She's a dear little girl,/ Sure my heart's in a whirl;/ As I sing this sweet song that brought joy./ Sure my life she'll redeem,/ For she's like a sunbeam/ And to me her sweet love is a love that's supreme.
CHORUS: She's the pride of my heart and she'll break it I know,/ She's an imp of the bad one, but sweet, that's my Jo./ There's a light in her eyes, 'Tis an angel's disguise;/ Sure I'd give all I know, For the love of my Jo.
