Oh! How I Do Love Sally Ann.
Copyright, 1895, by Wm. H. Hennamann.
Words and Music by W. H. Sewell.
My sweetheart's a dear little fairy, And Sally's her name, don't you see;
We both live down in the same alley-she says she loves no one but me;
Her nose has a slight elevation, her hair is the color of tan,
her voice is like little birds singing, oh, how I do love Sally Ann.
Sally, Sally, how I love Sully, belle of our ally;
Sally, Sally, oh, how I do love Sally Ann.
My sweetheart plays on the piano, she sings all the songs of the day;
The neighbors near by call it squalling, and say that they'll all move away;
She has lots of beans every evening, and am her best young man;
With dining she drives me 'most crazy, but, oh, I do love Sally Ann.-Refrain.
Her eyes are like little stars twinkling, she has such a sweet, winning way;
I think she has surely bewitched me, I'm urging her to name the day;
She says she's too young to be married, she'll have a good time while she can,
While I am unhappy And wretched, but, oh, how I love Sally Ann.-Refrain.
