GENTLY JOHNNY MY JINGALO
I put my hand all in her own
Fair maid is a lily oh
She said, "If you love me alone
Come to me quietly
Do me no injury
Gently, Johnny, my Jingalo"
I said, "You know I love you, dear"
She whispered softly in my ear
I placed my arm around her waist
She laughed and turned away her face
I kissed her lips like roses red
She blushed, then tenderly she said
I slipped a ring all in her hand
She said, "The parson's near at hand"
I took her to the church next day
The birds did sing and she did say
