liza, liza, skies are gray
but if you smile on me, all the clouds will roll away.
liza, liza, don’t delay
come keep me company, and the clouds will roll away.
see the honey moon a-shinnig down
we could make a date with parson brown.
so, liza, liza name the day
when you’ll belong to me, and the clouds will roll away.
