 Seen my lady home las' night, 
Jump back, honey, jump back.
Hel' huh han' an' sque'z it tight, Jump back, honey, jump back.
Hyeahd huh sigh a little sigh, Seen a light gleam f'om huh eye, An' a smile go flittin' by -- Jump back, honey, jump back.
Hyeahd de win' blow thoo de pine, Jump back, honey, jump back.
Mockin'-bird was singin' fine, Jump back, honey, jump back.
An' my hea't was beatin' so, When I reached my lady's do', Dat I could n't ba' to go -- Jump back, honey, jump back.
Put my ahm aroun' huh wais', Jump back, honey, jump back.
Raised huh lips an' took a tase, Jump back, honey, jump back.
Love me, honey, love me true? Love me well ez I love you? An' she answe'd, "'Cose I do"-- Jump back, honey, jump back.
