Sally used to carry my friends to school
Sally was a big old girl
Did my homework 'cause I was a fool
Sally was a good old girl

When I want a kiss or a little bitty squeeze
Sally's always willing and she did her best to please
A girl made to love and not made to tease
Sally was a good old girl

Sally was a good old girl
Sally was a good old girl
No matter what the request
Sally gave it her best
Sally was a good old girl

Well, her folks was poor
But she helped all she could
Sally was a good old girl
Hardest working woman in the neighborhood
Sally was a good old girl

She walked up and down the street all day
Selling neck ties to the one's who would pay
If you didn't have the money then she'd give them away
Sally was a good old girl

Sally was a good old girl
Sally was a good old girl
No matter what the request
Sally gave it her best
Sally was a good old girl

She was a favorite of all the men
Sally was a good old girl
All of the girls despised her then
Sally was a good old girl

Women talked about her but Sally didn't care
She kept for a workin' and a doin' her share
She wound up married to a millionaire
Sally was a good old girl

Sally was a good old girl
Sally was a good old girl
No matter what the request
Sally gave it her best
Sally was a good old girl

Sally was a good old girl
Sally was a good old girl
No matter what the request
Sally gave it her best
Sally was a good old girl
