OH, MARIA!
Tune-"Whoa Emma."
Written, Sung and Copyrighted by Sam Devere.

'Twas a stormy, cloudless night, the moon was shining bright,
A night that lovers love the best of all;
But the scene was quickly marred by a noise in our back yard,
When I heard a great big Tom cat loudly call-

Chorus.
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
Maria, your Thomas with love is on fire;
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
That's what I heard the whole blessed night.

At love they both did play in their own peculiar way,
With now and then a most unearthly yell;
Their courtship was immense, 'till, from over another fence,
Another great big Tom cat loud aid bawl-

Chorus.
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
If you shake your Thomas, he'll surely expire;
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
That's what I heard the whole blessed night.

These Tom cats humped their backs, and made some wild attacks,
Each other's hides they terribly did mawl;
While they were fighting hard, a Thomas in the next back yard
Just took Maria's ear and loud did bawl-

Chorus.
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
Come over in our yard and sit by the fire;
Oh, Maria! oh, Maria!
That's what I heard that whole blessed night.
