Pray tell, Jessye' Lisabeth
Tell me why you're weeping
Pray tell, Jessye' Lisabeth
When you should be sleeping
What secret are you keeping
Jessye' Lisabeth, pray tell

What could cause such bitter tears
What lesson has life taught you
Hear me sweet and precious one
Look what I have brought you
Here's a star I caught you
For my lady fair star

Pray tell, Jessye' Lisabeth
What can I do for you
Pray tell, Jessye' Lisabeth
Fair maiden I employ you
Oh how I adore you
Your humble servant I remain

Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo

Pray tell, Jessye' Lisabeth
Oh have I have missed you
Now you must dry your pretty eyes
I'm here to assist you
Come let mama kiss you
Twelve o'clock and all is well
