So help me, Bob, I'm bully in the alley,
Way, hey, bully in the alley!
Help me, Bob, I'm bully in the alley,
Bully down in shinbone al!
Sally is the girl that I love dearly,
Sally is the girl that I spliced nearly.
For seven long years I courted Sally,
All she did was dilly-dally.
I bought her silks and fancy laces
Took her to all the fancy places
I called her love and dear and honey
She drank my rum and stole my money
I'll leave my Sal and I'll go a sailin',
I'll leave my Sal and go a whalin'.
I'll come back and I'll marry Sally,
We'll have kids and count them by the tally.
I'll be back when the moon shines brightly,
If she's gone 'twill serve me rightly,
