A Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Song

"Oh, My Darling, See-Saw-Sarah" (karaoke)

"Oh, My Darling, See-Saw-Sarah" (sheet music)


O meine liewe Sie-Sa-Seera!

Sie weisst mer ihre Hie-Haa.

Herring Fisch sin gude Fisch,

Wann sie sin gut zugerischt!

 

Hinne dutt sie hie-haa-hinke!

Un vanne dutt sie schtie-schtaa.

Schtiwwel die warre vun Ledder gemacht;

Waer des net glaabt, watt ausgelacht!

 

Das Li-Laa-Lischen!

Hott in des Hemm gschi-gschaa.

Schiddel die Fedder un ropp die Gans,

En alder Fux hott Haar am Schwanz!

 

Un wann du mir's net glaawe witt,

Dann kannscht du mich im Mieh-Maa.

Lewwerwascht un Demmograad,

Mer kann sie esse zum Salaad!

 

Oh my darling See-Saw-Sarah,

She shows me her Hee-Haw.

Herring fish are nice to eat,

When they're cooked all young and sweet!

 

In the back she Lee-Law-Limps,

And in the front she Flee-Flaw.

Flour is handy when making a cake.

If you don't believe it, go jump in the lake!

 

Our Lee-Law-Lizzy,

And in her shirt she She-Shaw;

Shakes the feathers and plucks the hen;

Jumps on the wagon and off again!

 

And if you don't want to believe me,

Then you can let me Lee-Law.

Liverwurst and Democrats

I like as well as mice and rats!
