Say Darlin Say

print

Say little darlin won’t you marry me
Live in a holler neath the old oak tree
Say darlin say
In the old oak tree we’ll make our home
Never more in this world to roam
Say darlin say

Say little darlin if you were mine
You wouldn’t do nothing but starch and iron
Say darlin say
Starch and iron would be your trade
I’d get drunk and lay in the shade
Say darlin say

Say little darlin won’t you marry me
Live in a holler neath the old oak tree
Say darlin say
Live in the holler neath the old oak tree
Children bouncin’ on daddy’s knee
Say darlin say

Hush little darling don’t say a word
Poppa’s gonna buy you a mocking bird
Say darlin say
If that mocking bird don’t sing
Poppa gonna buy you a diamond ring
Say darlin say

If that diamond ring is brass
I’m gonna buy you a looking glass
Say darlin say
If that looking glass gets broke
Poppa gonna buy you a billy goat
Say darlin say

If that billy goat won’t pull
Poppa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull
Say darlin say
If that cart and bull falls down
You’re still the sweetest baby in town
Say darlin say
