We'll sweep the kitchen clean, my dear,|
And have a little song.
Poke the wood, my lady love
And make the fire burn,
And while I take the banjo down,
Just give the mush a turn.
Hi, Nelly! Ho Nelly !
Listen, love, to me,
I'll sing for you and play for you
A dulcet melody.
2. Nelly Bly has a voice like a turtle dove,
3. Nelly Bly shuts her eye when she goes to sleep.|
When she wakens up again her eyeballs start to peep.
The way she walks, she lifts her foot,
And then she bumps it down;
And when it lights, there's music there
In that part of the town.
4. Nelly Bly! Nelly Bly! Never, never sigh;
