DT Lyrics:

Happy Birthday!

Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman

was born 5/5/1867


As newswoman, Nelly Bly, she traveled around-the-world-in-72-days, finishing in 1890. (Verne's Le
tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours
was published in 1873. I knew you'd ask.) She probably took
her name from the well-known song.

         cho: Hi, Nelly! Ho Nelly!
                Listen, love, to me,
                I'll sing for you and play for you
                A dulcet melody.

        Nelly Bly has a voice like a turtle dove,
        I hear it in the meadow and I hear it in the grove.
        Nelly Bly has a heart warm as a cup of tea,
        And bigger than the sweet potatoes down in Tennessee.

                "Nelly Bly," Stephen Foster

Likely her sometime appearance as the other woman in "Frankie & Johnie" is much later.
