I'm looking for a song with a chorus that contains "Molly, Molly oh by gee, by golly" can any one help? My mother remembers it from the 20's or 30's and would like the sheet music if available. Thanks in advance.

Do you mean this one:


OH BY JINGO! OH BY GEE! (YOU'RE THE ONLY GIRL FOR ME)
Featured by Charlotte Greenwood in Oliver Morosco's Musical Production Linger Longer Letty
Words by Lew Brown. Music by Albert von Tilzer.
New York: Broadway Music Corporation, 1919.

Marcia Moderato

1. In the land of San Domingo,
Lived a girl called Oh! by Jingo,
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
From the fields and from the marshes,
Came the old and young by goshes
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
They all spoke with a diff'rent lingo,
But they all loved Oh by Jingo
And ev'ry night, they sang in the pale moonlight.

CHORUS: Oh! by Gee! by Gosh, by Gum, by Juv,
Oh by jingo won't you hear our love
We will build for you a hut,
You will be our fav'rite nut
We'll have a lot of little Oh by Gollies,
Then we'll put them in the Follies
By Jingo said, By Gosh, By Gee,
By Jiminy, please don't bother me
So they all went away singing, Oh by Gee,
By Gosh, by Gum, by Juv, by Jingo,
By Gee, you're the only girl for me.

2. Oh by Jingo had a lover,
He was always under cover
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
Ev'ry night she used to meet him,
Oh how nice she used to treat him
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
They eloped but they both were collared
And the gang stood there and hollered
Don't raise a fuss, you've gotta take one of us.


RtS (probably not...)

Thanks but I don't believe that is it. I'm told the chorus contains "Molly Molly oh by gee by golly (Molly?)". I'll have to see if my mother remembers more.

Thanks for trying, Bill

Could the line be oh me, oh my, Miss Molly, I'm in love with you? If it is, then it is Miss Molly by Bob Wills, about 1940. I don't have the words handy at the moment.

My 85 year old mother remembers it from no later than the 30's.

OH! BY JINGO! was previously posted here along with a link to the sheet music.

I think this is one of those popular songs that have entered the folk tradition, that is, given rise to lots of variants.

To hear "Oh! By Jingo", rent/borrow the Jeeves & Wooster episode "Trouble at Totleigh Towers" (from the fourth season of the Hugh Laurie/Stephen Fry BBC series). The episode begins with Hugh Laurie playing the beginning, to half-way through the first chorus, and ends with the major characters giving a spirited rendition ensemble.

In another episode (anyone know which?), Laurie plays the seldom-heard introduction to "Nagasaki".

It's one in which he is engaged to Lady Florence Craye- I don't remember which -but I do remember her coming up right after and asking if it was him making all that racket... Or I might be making things up.... That would be the First episode now that I think of it (Jeeves Takes Charge). Which I don't think it is... :/
