YALLER GAL THAT WINKED AT ME

Your attention I ask for a while,
To a song I’m going to sing you,
About a pretty little yaller gal
I met while I was walking.
She threw such a glance at me,
She was handsome and as sweet as a flower;
Such clothes you ne’er did see;
She’d a darling little bonnet with a flower-garden on it;
She’s the yaller gal that winked at me.

I immediately asked her her name;
She said it was Lucinda;
She said I was a stunner, and for life I had won her,
And married we would be,
I dressed up and walked by her house,
Every afternoon about three;
I glanced up at the window,
For to see my dear Lucinda;
She’s the yaller gal that winked at me.

You should of seen us on our wedding day;
She was handsome as a venus;
When the parson made us one,
Why then the thing was done,
And I never felt so happy in my life;
So I bought a little place down town; If you go by stop in and see us;
You’ll be welcomed by a wife,
That’s as dear to me as life;
She’s the yaller gal that winked at me.
