Tune-"Over the Garden Wall."-As sung by Bob Slaven.

To court my girl I was obliged to go
Over the neighbor's fence,
I didn't want her pa to know,
Over the neighbor's fence;
The old mau's foot it weighed a ton,
The teeth of the dog weren't made of gum.
To escape them both I bad to ran
Over the neighbor's fence.

Over the neighbor's fence.
It cost me eighty cents
My pauts to repair, I had no others to wear,
I left half of them on the fence;
Over the neighbor's fence,
The teeth of the dog is immense,
He eat buttons and all from my blue overalls,
Over the neighbor's fence.

I called the police, the dog wouldn't stop.
Over the neighbor's fence,
I all made tip for a doctor's shop,
Over the neighbor's fence;
I was all bit up from my head to my heels,
My hair fell out and my blood congeals,
On account of the dog I stand up to my meals,
From tackling the neighbor's fence.

Over the neighbor's fence,
I haven't forgot it sence,
I was used up so much that I walked with a crutch,
Ou account of a nigger wench;
Over the neighbor's fence,
I haven't been seen there sence,
They dipped me in glue, Saint Jacob's oil too,
Over the neighbor's fence
