MY LOVE IS A ZOU-ZU.
Tune- " My Love is a Sailor Boy."
My love is a Zou-zu, so gallant and bold,
He's rough and he's handsome, scarce nineteen years old;
To show off in Washington he has left his own "dear,
And my heart is a breaking because he's not here.
For his spirit was brave, it was fierce to behold,
In a young man bred a Zou-zu, only nineteen years old.
His parents taught him to be a cavalier.
But the life of a Zou-zu he did much prefer;
For his heart's with his country in right or in wrong,
And in Richmond, with Baxter, he'll be afore long.-Chorus.
My fond heart is beating for him constantly,
But I fear his affections may waver from me;
For a sweetheart can be found in each state I am told,
By a young man, a Zou-zu, only nineteen years old.-Chorus.
And now my Zou-zu, I grieve and repine,
For fear that his brave heart may never be mine;
All the wealth of Jeff Davis, in cotton or gold,
I would give for my Zou-zu, only nineteen years old.-Chorus.
