Sally in our alley

Sally in our alley

1. Of all the girls that are so smart,
there’s none like pretty Sally;
she is the darling of my heart,
and lives in our alley.
There is no lady in the land
is half so sweet as Sally.
She is the darling of my heart,
and lives in our alley.

2. Of all the days within the week
I dearly love but one day,
and that’s the day that comes betwixt
a Saturday and Monday.
For then I’m dressed in all my best
to walk abroad with Sally.
She is the darling of my heart,
and lives in our alley.

3. My master and the neighbours all
make game of me and Sally;
and but for her I’d better be
a slave, and row a galley;
but when my seven long years are out,
O, then I’ll marry Sally.
And then how happily we’ll live,
but not in our alley.
