Corinne, Corinna, where you been so long?
Corinne, Corinna, where you been so long?
Ain't been no loving since you been gone.

Oh, Corinna, where'd you stay last night?
Listen here, Corinna, tell me where'd you stay last night?
Came in this morning, the sun was shining bright.

I met Corinna way across the sea,
I met Corinna way across the sea,
She wouldn't write no letter,
She didn't care for me.

Corinne, Corinna, what's the matter now?
Corinne, Corinna, tell me what's the matter now?
You wouldn't write no letter,
You didn't love me nohow.

Good-bye, Corinna, it's farewell to you.
Good-bye, Corinna, it's farewell to you.
When I'll come back, no one can tell.
