LITTLE QUEEN OF MAY.
Copyright, 1888, by Geo. M. Klenck & Co.
Of all the gentle hearts I've known,
And faces I have seen,
There's one where love rules on his throne,
I fondly call my queen.
Her brow is deck'd with golden curls.
Her smile is bright and gay.
The fairest far of all the girls
Is little Queen of May.
Oh, never can my heart forget
The first bright sunny day,
Long, long ago, when first I met
The little Queen of May.
Though years and years have onward roll'd,
My heart remains as true
As when, dear May, in hours of old
I first breath'd love to you.
But times have chang'd, we part no more.
Our hearts are one for aye;
And I will call you. as of yore.
The little Queen of May.-Chorus.
