Sweet Betsy from Pike
A miner said, " Betsy, will you dance with me? " " I will that, old hoss, if you don't make too free; But don't dance me hard. Do you want to know
why? Dog on ye, I'm chock full of strong alkali."
Long Ike and sweet Betsy got married of course, But Ike getting jealous obtained a divorce; And Betsy, well satisfied, said with a shout, " Good-bye, you big lummax, I'm glad you backed out."
Saying, good-bye, dear Isaac,
Farewell for a while,
But come back in time
To replenish my pile.
