Verse:
Ban -jos are a -ring -ing, and the dark -ies sing -ing, Down on Mo -bile Bay,
Stars are bright -ly shin -ing, and my heart is pin -ing, For the south each day.
My sweet -heart is wait -ing, cute and fas -ci -nat -ing, Where I left her by the o -cean shore,
That is why I'm yearn -ing, and my thoughts are turn -ing, To Mo -bile once more.
 
Chorus:
On Mo -bile Bay, Hon -ey stole my heart a -way,
Be -side the sea, When she gave a lov -ing kiss to me.
She said "Good -bye", While the moon was shin -ing high,
On the dream -ing, beam -ing, gleam -ing Mo -bile Bay.
