NELLY BLY
3 Nelly Bly shuts her eye
When she goes to sleep, When she wakens up again
Her eye-balls 'gin to peep: De way she walks, she lifts her foot,
And den she brings it down, And when it lights der's music dah
In dat part ob de town.
4 Nelly Bly! Nelly Bly!
Nebber, nebber sigh, Nebber bring dc tear-drop
To de corner ob your eye, For de pie is made ob punkins
And de mush is made of corn, And der's corn and punkins plenty,-lub,
A lyin' in de barn.
