The song Sally, My Dear is in the DT, but I see that the text given doesn't include a number of verses that I know, which are as follows:

Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could wed you!
Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could wed you!
She laughed and replied, "Why, you silly blockhead, you!"
Sing whack fol ge-diggy di-do, sing whack! fol the day!

Oh, Sally, my dear, It's you I'd be mating!
Oh, Sally, my dear, It's you I'd be mating!
She laughed and replied, "Well then, why are you waiting?"
CHORUS

Oh, Sally, my dear, it's you I'd be kissin'!
Oh, Sally, my dear, it's you I'd be kissin'!
She laughed and replied, "You don't know what you're missin'!"
CHORUS

If the girls was all panthers, and raced 'round the moutain (2X)
We'd see all of the boys takin' guns to go hunt 'em.
CHORUS

If the girls was all blackbirds, or the girls was all thrushes (2X)
How many of the boys would go beatin' the bushes.
CHORUS

Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could wed you! (2X)
"Oh, sir, if you did, why, you'd say I misled you!"
CHORUS

DRO

The song as I know it...

Sally, My Dear

1. Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could woo you.
   Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could woo you.
   She laughed in reply: Faith, much good would it do you!

Chorus: To me whack fol-the-diddle dido
        To me whack fol-the-diddle dee.

2. Oh, Sally, my dear, your lips I would kiss 'em
   She laughed in reply: Oh, you'd probably miss 'em!

3. If all the young girls were hares on the mountain
   Then all the young men would take sticks and go hunting.

4. If all the young girls were blackbirds and thrushes
   Then all the young men would go beating the bushes.

5. If all the young girls were ducks on the water
   They'd laugh when they saw the men waddling after.

6. If all the young girls were bells in a tower
   Young men would turn sextons, and peal them each hour.

7. If all the young girls were bricks in a pile
   Young men would turn masons, and lay them in style.

8. Oh, Sally, my dear, I wish I could woo you.
   She laughed in reply: Faith, much good would it do you!
