8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I have got a sweetie known as Susie,
In the words of Shakespeare she's a "wow".
Though all of you May know her too,
I'd like to shout right now:
If you knew Susie like I know Susie,
Oh! Oh! Oh! what a girl!
There's none so classy as this fair lassie,
Oh! Oh! Holy Moses! what a chassis!
We went riding, She didn't balk,
Back from Youkers, I'm the one that had to walk!
If you knew Susie like I know Susie,
Oh! Oh! what a girl.
