Dinah
Carolina

Gave me Dinah;

I'm the proudest one

Beneath the Dixie sun.



News is spreadin'

'Bout our weddin';

I hear church bells ringin',

Here's the song my heart keeps singin':



Dinah,

Is there anyone finer

In the state of Carolina?

If there is and you know her,

Show her!



Dinah,

With her Dixie eyes blazin',

How I love to sit and gaze in

To the eyes of Dinah Lee!



Yet, every night,

My, how I shake with fright,

Because my Dinah might,

Change her mind about me!



But if Dinah,

Ever wandered to China,

I would hop an ocean liner,

Just to be with Dinah Lee!



Dinah,

Yet, every night,

My, how I shake with fright,

Because my Dinah might,

Change her mind about me!



But if Dinah,

Ever wandered to China,

I would hop an ocean!,

Just to be with Dinah Lee
