SPARKING SARAH JANE.

Sitting on the sofa, leaning on my breast,
Is a lovely maiden, perfectly at rest;
Listening to my love vows, sighing very plain.
Bless me, this is pleasant, sparking Sarah Jane.

Chorus.
Bless me, ain't it pleasant.
Bless me, ain't it pleasant,
Bless me, ain't it pleasant.
Sparking Sarah Jane?

Gentle words are spoken, kisses sweet we give,
Vows to love each other long as we do live;
Vows to be as happy as the running rill.
Never getting angry: do you think I will?- Chorus.

Dad is getting squeamish, shakes his head in doubt,
Ma looks on and wonders what her gal's about,
Thinks there'll be a weddin'-guesses that's no sin,
But somehow or another, hopes I've got the tin.-Chorus.

Daddy lie's consented, mamma can't say no,
Sonny kinder likes it, sissy wants a show,
Now begins the bustle, now begins the fun.
Every one is ready, shopping must be done.-Chorus.

Carriage stands awaiting, " Where'll you please to go? "
"Drive us up to Stewart's," see what he can show,
Troubling all the merchants, buying here and there,
Beating down the price-" Are you sure 'twill wear? "-Chorus.

Hurry up the dresses, cut them very low,
Make them large and airy where the hoops do go,
Trying on the bodice, trying on the capes.
Keep your fingers moving, cause it's getting late.-Chorus.

Sewing in the chamber, stitching in the hall,
Servants in the kitchen, fixing for the ball;
Every one is busy, 'cepting Jane and I,
Do you know the reason-shall I tell you why?- Chorus.

Sitting on the sofa, leaning on my breast,
Is a lovely maiden, perfectly at rest;
Listening to my love vows, sighing very plain,
Bless me, this is pleasant, sparking Sarah Jane.-Chorus.
