Written and sung by Carroll Johnson.

'Mid the smiles of bright-eyed lasses,
And the sight of dear old friends;
With the merry clink of glasses,
In some jolly chorus blends.
At a quiet little party,
With a kind and genial host;
Oft with voices strong and hearty,
Have we joined in this old toast:

Sweethearts and wives, sweethearts And wives,
Girls are the joys of our lives;
When pretty lips kiss, yum, yum, yum,
Oh, who can resist the darlings?

Now standing here I see before me.
Dear old friends I've known for years;
Though you're not all married, surely,
You all love the little dears.
Trouble shared is easily carried,
Wedded life is the happiest lot;
Some who are single wished they'd married,
Some who've married wished they'd not.-Chorus.
