Featured by Charlotte Greenwood in Oliver Morosco's Musical Production Linger Longer Letty
Words by Lew Brown. Music by Albert von Tilzer.

Marcia Moderato

1. In the land of San Domingo,
Lived a girl called Oh! by Jingo,
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
From the fields and from the marshes,
Came the old and young by goshes
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
They all spoke with a diff'rent lingo,
But they all loved Oh by Jingo
And ev'ry night, they sang in the pale moonlight.

CHORUS: 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.

2. Oh by Jingo had a lover,
He was always under cover
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
Ev'ry night she used to meet him,
Oh how nice she used to treat him
Ta da da da da da da da, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a, ump-a,
They eloped but they both were collared
And the gang stood there and hollered
Don't raise a fuss, you've gotta take one of us.
