Verse:
In the land of San Do - min - go, Lived a girl called Oh by Jin - go,
Ta da da da da da da da,  Ump - a, ump - a, ump - a, ump - a,
From the fields and from the marsh - es,  Came the old and young by gosh - es,
Ta da da da da da da da Ump - a, ump - a, ump - a, ump - a,
They all spoke with a dif - frent lin - go,  But they all loved Oh by Jin - go,
And ev - 'ry night they sang in the pale moon - light.
 
Chorus:
Oh, by Gee! by Gosh, by Gum, by Juv,
Oh by Jin - go, 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 lit - tle Oh! by Gol - lies,  Then we'll put them in the Fol - lies.
By Jin - go said,  By Gosh,  By Gee,
By Jim - in - y,  Please don't both - er me.
So they all went a - way sing - ing Oh! by Gee, by Gosh by Gum, by Juv, by Jin - go,
By Gee, you're the on - ly girl for me.
