Dance with a Dolly with a hole in her stocking…

As I was walkin’ down the street
Down the street, down the street
I met somebody who was mighty sweet
Mighty fair to see

I asked her would she like to have a talk
Have a talk, make some talk
All the fellows standin’ on the walk
Wishin’ they were me

Mama, Mama, let me dress up tonight
Dress up tonight, dress up tonight
I’ve got a secret, gonna ‘fess up tonight
Gonna dance by the light of the moon

Gonna dance with a dolly with a hole in her stockin’
While our knees keep a-knockin’ and our toes keep a-rockin’
Dance with a dolly with a hole in her stockin’
Dance by the light of the moon

** This song was adapted from the song “Buffalo Gals”, which was adapted from an 1844 song “Lubly Fan”, remember Jimmy Stewart in “It’s a Wonderful Life singing to Donna Reed? That’s the melody, thanks for the info Mel and the memories Robert, I can still see you dancing with a baby Susan to this…I’m sure you did with Lynne too…
