In the land of San Domingo
Lived a girl called Oh! by Jingo
Ya da ya da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a
From the fields and from the marshes
Came the old and young by goshes
Ya da ya da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a
They all spoke with a diff'rent lingo
But they all loved Oh by Jingo
And ev'ry night they sang in the pale moonlight

Oh! by Gee! by Gosh, by Gum, by Jove
Oh by Jingo, won't you hear our love
We will build for you a hut
You will be our fav'rite nut
We'll have a lot of little Oh by Gollies
Then we'll put them in the Follies
By Jingo said, By Gosh, By Gee
By Jiminy please don't bother me
So they all went away singing
Oh by Gee, by Gosh by Gum, by Jove, by Jingo
By Gee, you're the only girl for me

Oh by Jingo had a lover, he was always undercover
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a
Ev'ry night she used to meet him
Oh how nice she used to treat him
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a
They eloped but they both were collared
And the gang stood there and hollered
Don't raise a fuss, you've got to take one of us

Oh! by Gee! by Gosh, by Gum, by Jove
Oh by Jingo, won't you hear our love
We will live out in a tent
Keep the landlord of his rent
We'll have a lot of little Jiminy Crickets
We can use them for meal tickets
By Jingo said, now boys don't rave
I have put four husbands in the grave
So they all went away singing
Oh by Gee, by Gosh by Gum, by Jove, by Jingo
By Gee, you're the only girl for me
