[1st verse:] Miss Minnie Rosenstein Had such a voice so fine Just like Tetrazzini Any time that Minnie sang a song You'd think of real estate seven blocks long Some song! Young Mister Abie Cohn used to call to her home Just to hear her singing Presents he was bringing Full of bliss! One night young Abie proposed to the Miss Like this! [Refrain:] Yiddisha nightingale, sing me a song Your voice has got such sweetness that it makes me strong Yiddisha nightingale, sing me a song I promise that I'll take you on a long honeymoon I'd give a dollar to hear you, my queen I wouldn't give a nickel to hear Tetrazzini Just to hear your cultivated voice good and strong I'd serve a year in jail Yiddisha nightingale Won't you sing me a song? [2nd verse:] Then said young Abie Cohn "I'm going to buy a home One that's made of marble Dear, where you can warble harmony And I don't care for expenses you see That's me! I'll go and learn to play on the piano, say You'll sing while I'm playing People will be saying As they pass Some class!"
