An African American musician and lyricist
Noble Sissle - In Honeysuckle Time Lyrics


The song is written by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake from Shuffle Along the musical.

Everybody loves Emaline,
She’s the gal that all the fellows hang around.
Everybody knows Emaline,
Why she’s the pal of ev’ry other gal in town.
But e’ry pal and gal will soon be singing the blues,
When they hear the latest news:

In honeysuckle time, sweet Emaline
Said she’d be mine,
And in the wedding line
There’ll be no hesitating
For the preacher will be waiting.
When the knot am tied
With Emmy by my side,
All the fellows will be jealous,
And feeling kind-a-rough,
When I come along with Emaline a-struttin’my stuff.
Hot dog, my soul, goin’-a knock ’em cold.
I’ll be worth my weight in gold
In honeysuckle time,
When Emaline said she’d be mine.
