  • Many a girl I met or knew
    Oh, all my life I'd try for you
    A name so sweet as Jennie Lee
    Her heart is true and just for me
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)

    I met her just a year ago
    My love for her will grow and grow
    Her bright eyes make a fire in me
    Now I cannot live without Jennie Lee
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)

    Now If I were only seventeen
    There'd be no one left to bother me
    I'm gonna marry just wait and see
    To a sweet little girl named Jennie Lee
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee)
    Oh, Jennie (Jennie Lee) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
