Abraham [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to Abraham (1942). Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin. Played at the Holiday Inn. Sung on Lincoln’s birthday by Bing Crosby, Martha Mears (dubbing Marjorie Reynolds) in blackface, Chorus, and Louise Beavers with Shelby Bacon and Joan Arnold.

[Editor’s note: Abraham is a celebration of Abraham Lincoln‘s birthday — and several of the performers are in blackface, to represent freed slaves. If you’re offended … you’ve been warned. Bear in mind that this is using 1942’s sensibilities, not 21st century’s attitudes.]

Upon a February morn
A tiny baby boy was born
Abraham, Abraham

Ev’ry time
I see a puppy upon a summer’s day
A puppy dog at play
My heart is filled with envy
That’s because
My heart is yearning to pass the time away
Like that pup
’cause I’m all fed up
And tho’ it’s wrong to be
I long to be
