Sally Go 'round the Roses

This song is by The Jaynetts and appears on the compilation The Chess Story 1947-1975 (1999).

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)

Hope this place can't hurt you
(Hope this place can't hurt you)
Roses they can't hurt you
(Roses they can't hurt you)

Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is see your baby with another girl?

Sally go round, oh sally, don't you go
Sally, don't you go, don't you go downtown
Oh, don't you go downtown
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
See your baby with another girl

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)

They won't tell your secret
(They won't tell your secret)
They won't tell your secret
Oh no, won't tell your secret

Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Sit and cry with the door closed
Sit and cry so no one knows

Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
See your baby with another girl

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)

Sally go 'round the roses
(Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
