Dol-Li-A

 

Lyrics

It's fresh I come down Sandgate Street
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
My best friends here to meet
Dol-Li-A

Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A


Dolly Coxon's pawned her shirt
Dol-li, Dol-Li
To ride upon a baggage cart
Dol-Li-A

Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A

The green cuffs have gone away
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
That will be a crying day
Dol-Li-A

Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A

The black cuffs are coming in
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
That will make the lasses sing
Dol-Li-A

Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A

It's fresh I come down Sandgate Street
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
My best friends here to meet
Dol-Li-A

Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A


Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li, Dol-Li
Dol-Li, the Dillen-Doll
Dol-Li-A
