Judy Garland – Under The Bamboo Tree lyrics

in the jungles lived a maid Of
royal blood though dusky shade Tootie
marked impression once she made Upon
a Zulu Esther
Matabooloo Tootie
every morning he would be Down
underneath the bamboo tree Esther
Waitin' there his love to see Tootie
then to her he's sing Both
her he'd sing If
you like-a me like, I like-a you and we like-a both the same I
like-a say this very day I, like-a change your name 'Cause.
I love-a you and love-a you true and if you-a love-a me One
live as two two, live as one Under
the bamboo tree
