Dollie Lee came into see the town,
Dressed up in her "go to meetin'" gown,
On her grip in letter large and black,
She had painted "Dollie Lee of Hackensack"
a smooth young man who read her name you see,
said How do Dollie, You remember me,
But Dollie looked him over, And she winked her other eye,
Then quickly hid her pocket book, and made him this reply.
I remember you! I remember you!
Wasn't you the feller with the open umbreller
that I met one rainy day upon the avenoo?
I remember you! Yes indeed I do,
Gee! I'm awful glad I metcha Betcha,
life I don't forget cha I remember you.
This young man took Dollie out to dine,
Ordered supper ev'rything was fine,
When they'd had their seventh pint of wine,
He said Dollie won't you cash a check of mine,
She said, all right, my money's in my shoe,
Now you wait here I'll bring it back to you,
She went outside and wrote a little note and then she fled,
The waiter brought her note to him,
And these few lines he read.
