THE GOOD-NIGHT REQUEST.
Copyright, 1886, by Chas. D. Blake & Co.
Words by Allie L Griss. Music by W. A. Kellar.
I know it's getting late, love, 'Tis twelve o'clock and past.
Suppose we turn the hands around, it surely is too fast:
The ev'nings are so short, love, so very short, you know,
And, darling, won't you give me one more kiss And then I'll go!
The stars alone can peep, love, the moonbeams only see.
Oh! won't you grant me this request, and give one kiss to me?
I pray don't look so pouting, and frown upon me so.
But, darling, come And give me one more kite and then I'll go.
You know you said last night, love, you'd always try to please,
And now I claim your promise true, don't wait for me to tease;
But since you look so bashful, I'll keep myself just so,
But. darling, don't refuse me one more kiss, and then I'll go.-Chorus.
The time will surely come, love, my own, my heart's delight.
When I shall ask no more, my love ", a kiss for sweet good-night.
For you will be my wife, love, what joy I then shall know.
Then, darling, won't you give me one sweet kiss before I'll go?-Chorus
