Lyrics:
I’ve got a gal and you’ve got none, Li’l Liza Jane,
I’ve got a gal that calls me “hon,” Li’l Liza Jane.

Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane

Liza Jane done come to me, Li’l Liza Jane,
We’re as happy as we can be, Li’l Liza Jane.

Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane

Come my love and live with me, Li’l Liza Jane,
I will take good care of thee Li’l Liza Jane.

Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane

House and a lot in Baltimore, Li’l Liza Jane,
Lots of children running out the door, Li’l Liza Jane.

Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane

I’ve got a gal and you’ve got none Li’l Liza Jane.
I’ve got a gal that calls me “hon,” Li’l Liza Jane.

Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
Oh Eliza, li’l Liza Jane
