Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sally (from Gracie Fields)
Subject: Lyr Add: SALLY (Towers/Leon/Haines)
YouTube has two recordings of Gracie Fields singing SALLY:
An early one (1931?) and a later one (1956).

(Leo Towers/Harry Leon/Will Haines)
As sung by Gracie Fields

[1] Sally, Sally, don't ever wander
Away from the alley and me.
Sally, Sally, marry me, Sally,
And happy for ever I'll be.
When skies are blue, you're beguiling,
And when they're grey, you're still smiling, smiling.
Sally, Sally, pride of our alley,
You're more than the whole world to me.

[2] The skies were blue when I met you, Sally.
You were my gal, my little pal, so true.
You came along, made life a song, Sally.
If I lost you, I wonder what I'd do.


[Note: in the 1956 version, she changes the pronouns in part 2: "when he met were his gal..." etc.]
