SARAH

I came upon a charming girl and Sarah was her name.
Her parents want a husband with riches, wealth, and fame.
I have no wealth, and riches and fame have never come my way
Until the day when I crept up and through the keyhole say:

CHORUS:
"Sarah, Sarah, won't you come out tonight?
Sarah, Sarah, the moon is shining bright.
Put your cap and jacket on,
Tell your mother you won't be long,
And I'll be waiting for you 'round the corner."

My Sarah is a girl like this, a girl you seldom see.
She loves me only for myself and not for my money.
Every night at eight o'clock, she puts the needles away,
And standing just beside the door and through the keyhole say:
CHORUS

One night a little after eight, I crept up to her door
And I whispered, "Sarah, darling," as I'd often done before.
[spoken:]
"I'll give you Sarah!" said a voice, as down I fell a-flop,
And her mother saying, as she kicked me all around the shop:
CHORUS

The old woman thought she'd killed me and I let her think so, too.
As I lay there on the floor, I scarce knew what to do.
At last she said, "Is he live or dead? My girl I'll let him wed."
Then up I jumps, says, "Thank you ma'am," and to my girl I said:
CHORUS
