Peggy O'Neil is a girl who could steal
Any heart, anywhere, any time
And I'll put you wise how you'll recognise
This wonderful girl of mine

If her eyes are blue as skies
That's Peggy O'Neil
If she's smiling all the while
That's Peggy O'Neil
If she walks like a sly little rogue
If she talks with a cute little brogue
Sweet personality
Full of rascality
That's Peggy O'Neil

Everything's planned for a wedding so grand
In the spring I will bring her the ring
Then somewhere in town we'll both settle down
And all thro' the day I'll sing

If her eyes are blue as skies
That's Peggy O'Neil
If she's smiling all the while
That's Peggy O'Neil
If she walks like a sly little rogue
If she talks with a cute little brogue
Sweet personality
Full of rascality
That's Peggy O'Neil

Patter chorus:
Annie Rooney set a fellow looney
But a million fellows now are feeling spooney
When they meet Peggy O'Neil
Molly O was never, never slow
But I want you to know
She couldn't make a show
Along o' Sweet Peggy O'Neil
Rose O'Grady was a perfect lady
With a simple winning baby smile
Peggy isn't simple that is why
She has the other girlies beat a mile
So if you meet a girl who's sweeter than Bedelia
And you feel you want to say: "I'd like to steal yer"
That's Peggy O'Neil
