This song is in the key of F.
In the land of San Domingo, Lived a girl called Oh by Jingo,
Ta da da da da da da da,  Umpa, umpa, umpa, umpa,
From the fields and from the marshes,  Came the old and young by goshes,
Ta da da da da da da da Umpa, umpa, umpa, umpa,
They all spoke with a diffrent 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 Juv,
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 Juv, by Jingo,
By Gee, you're the only girl for me.
