This is a famous song that was first published in 1921. It was written by Sidney Clare and composed by Con Conrad.

Notes

There's a longer version with these additional verses:

Little Lilly was oh, so silly and shy
And all the fellows knew,
She wouldn't bill and coo:
Every single night some smart fellow would try
To cuddle up to her,
But she would cry.

Lilly was so good, every body could tell.
You'd never see her roam,
She'd always stay at home;
All the neighbors knew little Lilly too well.
For when the boys would call,
They'd hear her yell…
