So take this yellow handkerchief in remembrance of me
And tie it round your neck, my love, in flash companie.
Flash companie, my boys, like a geat many more
If it hadn't a been for flash companie I should never a been so poor.

For once I loved a young girl as I loved my life
And I thought in my heart I would make her my wife.
With her white cotton stockings, and her high ankle shoes
And she wears a yellow handkerchief wherever she goes.

So take this yellow handkerchief in remembrance of me
And tie it round your neck, my love, in flash companie.
Flash companie, my boys, like a great many more
If it hadn't a been for flash companie I should never a been so poor.

For with fiddling and dancing 'twas all my delight
And in keeping such company it ruined me quite.
It has ruined me quite, my boys, like a great many more
If it hadn't a been for flash companie I should never a been so poor.

So take this yellow handkerchief in remembrance of me
And tie it round your neck, my love, in flash companie.
Flash companie, my boys, like a great many more
If it hadn't a been for flash companie I should never a been so poor.

For once I had a color as red as the rose
But now I'm as pale as the lily that grows.
Like a flower in the garden all my color has gone
So you see what I'm coming to from loving that one.

So take this yellow handkerchief in remembrance of me
And tie it round your neck, my love, in flash companie.
Flash companie, my boys, like a great many more
If it hadn't a been for flash companie I should never a been so poor.
