Written and sung by Gus Williams.

'Twas early in the month of May,
I said to my girl, Lou;
As I am going far away,
I'm going to ask if you
Will constant be while I'm at sea?
She bowed her lovely head,
Then placed her tiny hands in mine,
And I to her then said:

Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye, lovely Lou,
Think of me when I'm at sea and I will think of you;
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye, lovely Lou,
Think of me when I'm at sea and I will think of you.

She said, to you I will be true,
To do the same I ought;
Tho' I am told you sailors
Have a wife in every port.
I said, now, Lou, don t look so blue,
Or think me so unkind;
I never could forget
The girl I left behind.-Chorus.

I've one thing, Lou, to tell to you
Before the seas I roam;
And that is of the presents
I am going to bring you home.
An Indian shawl, a parasol,
A tiny kangaroo;
A monkey and a parrot, yes,
And they are all for you.-Chorus.

I bid adieu to lovely Lou,
We parted on the shore;
And something seemed to tell me
I should never see her more.
When I returned I quickly learned,
That she had gone away;
So now, as Lou has proved untrue,
Why, I can only say:-Chorus.
