While walkin' down de street de udder day
I happened fer to raise ma eyes and look wid all my might and main
For standin' on de corner was a yaller gal.
She said Chlorinda Johnson was her name.
Why ma heart had flown, I lost my head completely,
For ma own true love had stolen all de sense I ebber had away.
I look her band, she blushed and smiled so sweetly ;
Oh, I kissed her And I den did fondly say:-Oh-

Honey, ma little gal,
Won't you come and let me whisper
In your ear how much I lub you?
Fore de Lord, you is ma sweet­You'se ma onliest one in all dis world to me;
You has ma soul, ma life, ma all,
Just as true as stars dat shine-
Oh, tell me dat you tub me.
And say dat you'll be mine.

Chlorinda, she's de gal I'se gwine to marry.
You bet we'll have a happy time, for love has made our two hearts one.
You ask her who compares to her own lubly boy.
She'll roll her eyes and sweetly answer "None!"
You'se can talk about yo' hoe-cake and persimmons,
They're not in it wit de gal I lub, because I know she's just divine.
I'll lub her till I die, ma heart will creep and grow.
Just as sweetly as de sweet potato vine.-Oh I- Chorus.
