IS THAT SO?
Copyright, 1881, by Brans & Kaufmann.
Words by George Cooper. Music by J. P. Skelly.
We wandered in the Summer, the birds were singing gay,
"We sat beneath the bowers to watch the sunbeams play;
To tell my love I lingered with cheeks all in a glow,
And when I said she was my pet, she murmured: Is that so?
Is that so? is that so?
If you kiss me, George, I'll go;
I called her love and turtle dove,
She blushed and murmured: Is that so?
She sent me to her papa to ask for his consent,
But when I begged his daughter, he scarce knew what I meant;
I said that I adored her and long had been her beau,
He only showed me to the door and shouted: Is that so?-Chorus.
Oh, now we two are married and happy as the birds,
She always meets me smiling and gives me pleasant words;
But when late home I wander she's waiting up, I know,
And if I say, 'twas business, love, she whispers: Is that so?-Cho.
