I'm a little Dutch girl,
As pretty as can be,
And all the boys on the baseball team
Are crazy over me.

They gave me all their apples.
They gave me all their pears.
They gave me fifty cents
And kicked me down the stairs.

My mother wanted peaches.
My brother wanted pears.
My father wanted fifty cents
To fix the broken stairs.

My boyfriend gave me peaches.
My boyfriend gave me pears.
My boyfriend gave me fifty cents
To fix the broken stairs.

My mother ate the peaches.
My brother ate the pears.
My father ate the fifty cents
And fell right down the stairs.

My mother gave me peaches.
My father gave me pears.
My boyfriend kissed me on the  cheek
And fell right down the stairs.

I am a little Dutch girl
As pretty as can be be be
And all the boys around my block
Are crazy over me me me.
