Saginaw, Michigan I was born, in Saginaw Michigan, I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay, My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman, Too many times he came home with too little pay. I love a girl, in Saginaw Michigan, the daughter of a wealthy wealthy man, But he called me that son of a Saginaw fisherman, Not good enough to claim his daughters hand. cho: Now I'm up here in Alaska, looking around for gold, Like a crazy fool I'm digging in this frozen ground so cold, But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then, I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan. I wrote my love, in Saginaw, Michigan, I said "Honey I'm coming home please wait for me, You can tell your dad I'm coming back a richer man, I hit the biggest strike in Klondike history". Her dad met me in Saginaw, Michegan, He gave me a great big party with champagne, Then he said, "Son, you're a wise young ambitious man, Will you sell your father in law your Klondike claim"? cho: Now he's up there in Alaska, digging in the cold cold ground, the greedy fool is lookin' for the gold I never found, It serves him right and no one here is missing him, Least of all the newlyweds of Saginaw, Michigan.
