Sally Was a Good Old Girl

 


 


 

      Whoa!  Sally used to carry my books to school

      Sally was a good old girl

      Ah, she helped me with my homework ‘cause I was a fool

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      If you wanted a kiss or a little bit of sweetness

      She was always willing to do her best to please

      The girls made for love are not made to tease  

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Whoa, whoa …

 

      Sally was a good old girl … yeah, yeah, yeah …

      Sally was a good old girl … yeah, yeah, yeah …

      No matter what the request

      She gave you her best

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Now, her folks were poor and she helped all she could

      Sally was a good old girl

      She was the hardest workin’ girl in the neighborhood

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Yeah!  She walked up and down the streets all day

      A-sellin’ neckties to the ones who’d pay

      If ya didn’t have the money she would give ‘em away

      A-Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Whoa, whoa …

 

      Sally was a good old girl … yeah, yeah, yeah …

      Sally was a good old girl … yeah, yeah, yeah … 

      No matter what the request

      She gave you her best

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Whoa!  She was the favorite with all the men

      Sally was a good old girl

      Yeah, and all the other girls despised her then

      Sally was good old girl.

 

      Do you believe me that …

      A-Sally never minded, she couldn’t care  

      She kept on a-workin’ an’ a-doin’ her share

      She wound up a-married to a millionaire

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Now talk to me!

 

      Sally was a good old girl 

      Sally was a good old girl

      No matter what the request

      She gave you her best

      Sally was a good old girl.

 

      Yeeee-a-up!

      Oh … good old girl

      No matter what the request 

      She gave you her best

      Sally was a good old girl!
