Abraham [song lyrics]

  • by

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

We’re off on the road to Morocco
This taxi is tough on the spine [beats the bu]
Where they’re goin’, why we’re goin’, how can we be sure
I’ll lay you eight to five that we’ll meet Dorothy Lamour [woo hoo!]
