Sally Go Round The Roses

Sally go 'round the roses. Sally go 'round the roses.
Sally go 'round the roses. Sally go 'round the pretty roses.
The roses, they can't hurt you. No, the roses, they can't hurt you
The roses, they can't hurt you. No, the roses, they can't hurt you
Sally, don't you go down
Oh, mama, don't you go down town

Honey, the saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to find your woman been with another girl
Sally, don't you do down
Aw, darlin', don't you go down

I'm going downtown
Lord, I'm drinkin' tonight
I'm goin downtown
Gonna drink myself blind
Goin' downtown
Gonna be dancin' tonight
Goin' down town
Gonna kick 'em up high (?)

It's been a long time
Since I've had my way
It's been a long time
Since I've had my way at all
I want to do that drunken belly rub
I want to sing that juke box melody
I want to stroll
Like we used to stroll
Way back home in Baltimore

Sally go round the roses
Sally, don't you go down
Oh, darlin' don't you go down
The saddest thing in this whole wide world
Is to find your baby been with another girl

Sally, don't you go down
Oh, mama, don't you go down town

I'm singin' Sally go round the roses...
