Under the Bamboo Tree lyrics


Under the Bamboo Tree lyrics, words and music by Robert Cole and The Johnson Bros., 1902

Song lyriccs to Under the Bamboo Tree as performed by Margaret O’Brien (“Tootie”) and Judy Garland (“Esther”) in Meet Me in St. Louis

Esther (Judy Garland)
Down in the jungles lived a maid
Of royal blood though dusky shade

Tootie (Margaret O’Brien)
A marked impression once she made
Upon a Zulu

Esther (Judy Garland)
From Matabooloo

Tootie (Margaret O’Brien)
And every morning he would be
Down underneath the bamboo tree

Esther (Judy Garland)
A Waitin’ there his love to see

Tootie (Margaret O’Brien)
And then to her he’d sing

To her he’d sing
If you like-a me, like I like-a you and we like-a both the same
I like-a say this very day, I like-a change your name.
‘Cause I love-a you and lov-a you true and if you-a love-a me
One live as two, two live as one
Under the bamboo tree
