Sadie darling, pretty flower,
Do you not remember well.
In your little cot of roses,
Loving stories we did tell?
Where the merry birds were singing.
Blithe and merry in the dell.
Where so oft we sat together,
For we both were loving well.
Sadie, darling, fondest treasure,
Say I'll soon be with you, darling;
Sadie, dear, I love you yet.
When the golden tinge of sunset
Ushered in the stars above,
Theni I sat beside you, darliug,
For I claimed you as my love.
Then the moon with glory beaming,
Floated 'mong the stars so bright,
Then I kissed you and caressed you,
On that calm, sweet Summer's night.-Chorus.
I've been sad since last we parted,
In that Summer long ago,
For you'va sent no word to cheer me.
When you knew I loved you so.
But we soon will meet, my darling,
For I love you ever true;
Darling Sadie, I'm returning.
For I love none else but you.-Chorus.
