Lyrics: First verse When the cold days all over love You and I will wed, Wedding bells will be ringing loud Telling what we said Little birds will be singing love oh, listen to the mocking bird, Complimenting you and me I tell you little girlie I'll work hard for you If you listen to my plea, If you listen to my plea. Chorus Roll them Roly Boly Eyes Roll them honey to the skies Oh, I could cry Yes I could die I could lay myself down eat a piece of pie Come along honey And let me see you roll Them Roly Boly Eyes Eyes Eyes. Roll them Roly Boly Eyes Roll them honey to the skies Oh, I could cry Yes I could die I could lay myself down eat a piece of pie Come along honey And let me see you roll Them Roly Boly Eyes Eyes Eyes. Second verse I never was in love before Till I met Mary Ann. Just like a barrel of molassess Sweetest in the land That same little bird will now sing oh, sing it little birdie sing, Sing it just as hard as you can Little girlie I will ne’er get tired of you If you sing for Mary Ann, Sing this song for Mary Ann.

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
