Sally Brown

O, Sally Brown, of New York City,
Way, hay, roll and go!
O, Sally Brown you're very pretty
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

2. O, Sally Brown's a bright mulatto,
Way, hay, roll and go!
She drinks rum and chews tobacco,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

3. O, Sally Brown's a Creole lady,
Way, hay, roll and go!
She's the mother of a yellow baby,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

4. Seven long years I courted Sally,
Way, hay, roll and go!
Sweetest girl in all the valley,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

5. Seven long years she wouldn't marry,
Way, hay, roll and go!
And I no longer cared to tarry,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

6. So I courted Sal, her only daughter,
Way, hay, roll and go!
For her I sail upon the water,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

7. Sally's teeth are white and pearly,
Way, hay, roll and go!
Her eyes are blue, her hair is curly,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!

8. Now my troubles are all over,
Way, hay, roll and go!
Sally's married to a dirty soldier,
Spend my money on Sally Brown!
