American Old Time Song Lyrics: 22 You And I Love
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 22
YOU AND I LOVE.
Copyright, 1888, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Written, and sung by W. J. Scanlan,
in his new drama, Myles Aroon
The poets may dream of rapture and bliss,
Of lovers whose love is a lingering kiss;
Of hearts ever true thro' sorrow and strife,
Of home and its joys, the comforts of life.
Give to me the dell with all its fragrance sweet,
The dell where first my love and I did meet;
Where stars shown out the brightest in that grand retreat.
Where oft my love and I, together strolled.
Starry night in fairy dell,
We'll kiss again, love, but never tell.
None to see, love, but stars and sky.
None to tell, love, but you And I.
In fairy dell where we have oft met,
Those happy hours can you ever forget?
There by your side 'neath starry sky,
Like doves we coo, my love and I.
Happy, love, am I when e'er I think of thee,
Oh, how my heart doth beat when you I see;
Oh what would life, or fancy's dream be, love, to me.
Did I but feel that thou hath said farewell?-Refrain.
