Oh Challo Brown she's a bright mulatta,
oh she drinks rum and chews tobacca,
Oh Challo lives on the old plantation,
she's a daughter of the Wild Goose Nation.
Seven long years I courted Sally,
but al I she did was dil ly - dal ly.
Challo Brown i took a notion,
to sail across the flamin' ocean.
I shipped away in a New Bedford whaler,
when i got back she wuz courtin' a tailor.
Now me troubles they are over,
Challo' s married to a big, black soger.
