Polly-Wolly-Doodle
BÝrnesang ca. 1840

Oh, I went down south for to see my Sal
Singing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day
Oh my Sal she am a spunky gal
Singing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.

Fare thee well, fare thee well
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm goin' to Louisiana for to see my Susi-anna
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.

Oh, my Sal she am a maiden fair
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day
With curly eyes and laughing hair
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.

I came to a river and couldn't get across
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day
I jumped on a gator and thought he was a hoss
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.

Fare thee well, fare thee well
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm goin' to Louisiana for to see my Susi-anna
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
