ONLY A RING-LET OF HAIR
Copyright, 1883, by Frank B. Haynes.

Only a ringlet of hair,
Tinted with sunlight's bright hue,
Mingling with tresses so fair,
Fairer no lover e'er knew;
Like a bright sunbeam it fell,
Binding ray heart in its snare,
Weaving around me love's spell,
Tho' but a ringlet of hair.

Chorus.
Precious it is unto me,
Naught with this tress can compare,
How my heart beats when I see
This golden ringlet of hair.

Bright the stars twinkled above
When by the beautiful sea,
This, as a token of love,
Jennie bestowed upon me;
Warm on my lips was her kiss,
Maiden so sweet and so fair,
Thus do I treasure this tress,
Only a ringlet of hair.-Chorus.

Wedded for years we have been,
She is a true loving wife,
Still of my heart she is queen,
Solace and joy of my life;
Beautiful still to my eyes,
No one with her can compare,
Thus do I treasure and prize
This golden ringlet of hair.-Chorus.
I Have Something Sweet to Tell You.

I have something sweet to tell you,
But the secret you must keep,
And, remember, if it isn't right,
I'm talking in my sleep;
Fur I know I am but dreaming,
When I think your love is mine, .
And I know they are but seeming,
All the hopes that round me shine.

Chorus.
I have something sweet to tell you,
But the secret you must keep,
And, remember, if it isn't right,
I'm talking in my sleep.

So, remember, when I tell you
What I cannot longer keep,
We are none of us responsible
For what we say in sleep;
My pretty secret's coming,
Oh, listen with your hearts,
And you shall hear it humming
So close 'twill make you start.-Chorus.

Oh, shut your eyes so earnest,
Or mine will wildly weep;
I love you, I adore you, but
I'm talking in my sleep;
For I know I am but dreaming,
When I think your love is mine.

And I know they are but seeming,
All the hopes that round me shine.-Chorus.
