Copyright, 1898, by Lyon & Healy.
Written and Composed by B. Gilbert.
There's a pretty little gal all mine,
She's so elegant and sweet all de time-
Fer to marry her I'm sighin',
An' at times I feel as if I was a-dyin',
Now she lubs to hear me sing, yes she do-
An' to play upon de banjo, too,
Fer I've a song, a lubly song.
Which I sings to her de whole day long.
Susie us, do lub me true,
Darky boy is berry fond of you;
Meet you. honey, in de mornin',
Wen de birds am all a callin' Susie us, mah Susie-ue,
Susie, usie, usie, usie-us.
Oh, Susie ue, do lub me true,
Darky boy is very fond of you,
Meet yer, honey, in de mornin'
Wen de birds am all a-callin'
Susie us, mah Susie-us;
Susie, usie, Susie usie-us.
'Mong de honeysuckle all day long,
Hark! de bees are hummin' dere wild song-
From de cabin comes loud singin',
Darkies voices thro' de old plantation ringin',
An' dere's gwine to be some fun ober dere,
Dat will make de odder nigger boys stare,
For massa's gwine ter make her mine;
I'se so happy dat I can't help crying:-Refrain.
