WHISPER AND A KISS.

Whisper And a kiss before we part, love,
Ere I sail across the boundless sea,
For I know that nestled in your heart, love,
Dwells a little tender thought of me.
See, you cannot hide that look of sadness.
Beaming from your bonnie eyes of blue;
A kiss shall be the seal of two happy hearts entwined,
I'll whisper that I love but you.
There goes the signal, now we have to part,
Wear this little rose-bud close beside your heart;
See, the boat is waiting, now I have to go,
Whisper and a kiss, love, don't say no!
Whisper and a kiss, I'm going afar, love,
O'er the bounding billows I must roam.
Let your image be my guiding star, love,
Beacon bright to steer me safely home.
Yes. your silent answer is a kiss, love,
Now I'll promise ever to be true;
Soon from the flowing tide I'll return to claim my bride,
And whisper that I love but you.-Chorus.
