lyrics

Hi-ho, the world may know
The very best girls are from Ohio
We can darn a stocking, turn a wheel
Get up a dinner or dance a reel
Workers in the morning, ladies at night
Yet always cheerful and polite
Sing gaily sing, sing gaily sing
We sing all day at work or play
For our hearts are as pure as the morning

Hi-ho, the world may know
The very best girls are from Ohio
Up with the lark in the morning bright
Away to our tasks with hearts so light
Sweep a floor, make a bed
Cheerful morning table spread
Sing gaily sing, sing gaily sing
We sing all day at work or play
For our hearts are as pure as the morning

Hi-ho, the world may know
The very best girls are from Ohio
Whenever we meet the suffering poor
We freely give, we can work for more
For well we know the generous part
Makes the freest hand and the lightest heart
Sing gaily sing, sing gaily sing
We sing all day at work or play
For our hearts are as pure as the morning

Hi-ho, the world may know
The very best girls are from Ohio
Wash and iron, bake and clean
Dress up for a party as nice as a queen
If you want to lead a happy life
Don’t leave Ohio ’til you get a wife
Sing gaily sing, sing gaily sing
We sing all day at work or play
For our hearts are as pure as the morning

Hi-ho, the world may know
The very best girls are from Ohio
