San - Song and Lyrics by Lindsay McPhail and Walter Michels

San

San

Year 1920

Words and Music by Lindsay McPhail and Walter Michels

Van Alstyne and Curtis
Toledo, Chicago and New York

  First Verse
King San of Senegal Sat on the shore At Bulamay, Singing a sad refrain. To his dear queen who'd gone away, This was his lay.

Second Verse
One day the queen came home Saw San in sadness on the shore, Told him she'd no more roam. Only her San would she adore, Then came this lore.

Chorus
Oh, sweet heart Lona, my darling Lona, Why have you gone away? You said you loved me, But if you loved me, Why did you act this way? If I had ever been untrue to you, What you have done would be the thing to do; But my heart aches, dear, And it will break, dear, If you don't come back home again to San!

Chorus 2
Oh, sweet heart Lona, my darling Lona, Have you come back to stay? You said you loved me, I knew you loved me, I knew you'd | come some day. If I had ever been untrue to you, What you have done would be the thing to do; But now you're mine, dear, For all the time, dear, And you're forgiven by your loving San!
