Surely Shirley will come on down

and surely Shirley still lives in town

And if Shirley lives in the country

then surely someone will bring her around.

Bring her around to her senses

Bring her around and make her see

That no one in the city or country

loves my Shirley surely more than me.

While I stopped to smell her roses

I stepped upon all of her flowers

While I thought I made her heart happy

I found that I was tearing it apart.

Shirley told me one dreary May

that she was going to move away

I just laughed and told her never

and I've never seen my Shirley to this day.

Someone said they'd seen her shopping

for a fancy wedding ring

Shirley told me she'd never marry

So are you for sure about this thing.

I went and saw her groom to be

and he looked a lot like me

We were left standing in the church

Now both of us has suffered hurt.

Surely Shirley will come on down

and surely Shirley still lives in town

And if Shirley lives in the country

then surely someone will bring her around.

then surely someone will bring her around.
