Text by George Houston Bass
Such a pretty black girl is my Julie-Ju
A pretty little black girl is my Julie
She makes me laugh
She makes me sing
My Julie brings laughter and song to me
When things go wrong my Julie brings laughter and song to me
When things go wrong for me
Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie-Ju
