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

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

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.

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,

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.

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 to my girl I said:

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
