Jack and Joe

Three years ago when Jack & Joe set sail across the foam, They each one vowed a
fortune to make be-fore returning home. In just one year Jack gained his wealth &
started home one day, and when the pals shook hands to part poor Joe could only say:

Chorus

Give my love to Nellie Jack, and kiss her once for me The fairest girl in all the world I
know you'll say 'tis she. Treat her kindly Jack, old pal. Tell her that I'm well. His
