Subject: DTADD: Suitors^^
SUITORS

There are suitors at my door, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
Six or eight or maybe more O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
And my father wants me wed, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
Or at least that's what he said, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a

Chorus
O-le-o-la, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
O-le-o-la, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
O-le-o-la, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
O-le-o-la, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a

I told him that I will, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
When the rivers flow uphill, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
Or the fish begin to fly, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a
Or the day before I die, O-le-le-o-ba-hi-a

Chorus^^

Identified as a Brazilian folk song

from Sing Together, A Girl Scout Songbook, 1973^^
