Oh Sally she'n the gal that I love dearly
Way, sing Sally oh
Sally she'n the gal that I love dearly
Hilo Johnnie Brown stand to your ground

Oh Sally she's the gal that I splice nearly
Her lips is red and her hair is curly

Oh Sally she'n my 'Badian beauty
Sally gal she know her duty

Oh Sally she'n my bright mulatta
Sally gal she do what she ought to

Oh seven long years I courted Sally
But I don't care for her dilly dally

So I signed onboard of a New Bedford whaler
When I come home she was married to a tailor
