SALLY IN OUR ALLEY.

 
Sally in our alley (page 12 crop).jpg


Of all the girls that are so smart,
There's none like pretty Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley:

 
Sally in our alley (page 13 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 14 crop).jpg


There's ne'er a lady in the land
That's half so sweet as Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.

Sally in our alley (page 16 crop).jpg


Her father he makes cabbage-nets,
And through the streets does cry them;

 
Sally in our alley (page 17 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 19 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 20 crop).jpg


Her mother she sells laces long
To such as please to buy them:
But sure such folk can have no part
In such a girl as Sally;

 
Sally in our alley (page 21 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 22 crop).jpg


When she is by, I leave my work,
I love her so sincerely;

 
Sally in our alley (page 23 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 24 crop).jpg


My master comes, like any Turk,
And bangs me most severely:
But let him bang long as he will,
I'll bear it all for Sally;

 
Sally in our alley (page 25 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 26 crop).jpg


Of all the days are in the week,
I dearly love hut one day;
And that's the day that comes betwixt
A Saturday and Monday;

 
Sally in our alley (page 27 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 28 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 30 crop).jpg


For then I'm dressed all in my best,
To walk abroad with Sally;

 
Sally in our alley (page 31 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 32 crop).jpg


My master carries me to church,
And often I am blamèd,

 
Sally in our alley (page 33 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 34 crop).jpg


Because I leave him in the lurch
Soon as the text is namèd:
I leave the church in sermon time,
And slink away to Sally;

 
Sally in our alley (page 35 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 36 crop).jpg


When Christmas comes about again,
Oh, then I shall have money;
I'll hoard it up, and, box and all,
I'll give unto my honey:
I would it were ten thousand pounds,
I'd give it all to Sally:

 
Sally in our alley (page 37 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 38 crop).jpg


My master and the neighbours all,
Make game of me and Sally;
And but for she I'd better be
A slave, and row a galley:

 
Sally in our alley (page 39 crop).jpg

 
Sally in our alley (page 40 crop).jpg


But when my seven long years are out,
Oh, then I'll marry Sally,
And then how happily we'll live,
But not in our alley.

 
Sally in our alley (page 41 crop).jpg

Lyrics(not individually listed)

1.

Of all the girls that are so smart,
There's none like pretty Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.
There's ne'er a lady in the land
That's half so sweet as Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.


2.

Her father he makes cabbage-nets,
And through the streets does cry them;
Her mother she sells laces long
To such as please to buy them:
But sure such folk can have no part
In such a girl as Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.

 

3.

When she is by I leave my work,
I love her so sincerely;
My master comes, like any Turk,
And bangs me most severely:
But let him bang long as he will,
I'll bear it all for Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.


4.

Of all the days are in the week,
I dearly love but one day;
And that's the day that comes betwixt
A Saturday and Monday;
For then I'm drest all in my best,
To walk abroad with Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.


5.

My master carries me to church,
And often am I blamed,
Because I leave him in the lurch
As soon as text is named:
I leave the church in sermon-time,
And slink away to Sally;
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.


6.

When Christmas comes about again,
O, then I shall have money;
I'll hoard it up, and, box and all,
I'll give unto my honey:
I would it were ten thousand pounds,
I'd give it all to Sally:
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.


7.

My master and the neighbours all,
Make game of me and Sally;
And but for she I'd better be
⁠A slave, and row a galley:
But when my seven long years are out,
⁠Oh, then I'll marry Sally,
And then how happily we'll live,
⁠But not in our alley.
