Words and music by Dan Emerson.

I'm In love with a pretty octoroon, and I hope to be married soon.
She's big black eyes that laugh and cry, and Cheeks like a peach in bloom;
Site's as graceful as a fawn and as fair as the early dawn,
I invite you all to be on hand when you hear those sweet bells ring.

When you hear those sweet bells ring, and the birds begin losing,
When all nature seems to smile, and the pansies nod so graceful,
When the rose is kissed with dew, and the sun shines bright all through,
To-morrow I'll be married, when you hear those sweet bells ring.

When the bright moonlight sheds its silv'ry sheen over all nature's fairest scenes
The twinkling stars look down so far and shine brightly in my dreams
When the birds have censed their song and I wait for that sweet ding-dong,
Down the moonlit lake I row my hark, waiting for those bells to ring.
