Sally In Our Alley

Words and Music: Henry Carey (1726)
Ah romance! Well you see, this young fellow likes
this girl named Sally, even skips out on church to see her on Sunday,
endures the laughter of the townspeople, beatings from his boss,
you name it. Often spoofed throughout the centuries, this song
still has a certain amount of undeniable charm to it. It was re-popularized
in the early years of the 20th century when several shows were created around its theme.
