Dear Ilma, come kiss papa. It's time he was away,
I'll be with thee this evening, to laugh, sing and play.
Don't pucker up your lips now, as if about to cry,
But like a dear good baby kiss papa one bye, bye.
Bye, bye, baby, bye, bye! bye, bye, baby dear.
Say da, da, to papa, while mamma love is near.
Bye, bye, llma dear, one big kiss for papa,
Bye, bye, baby, dear.
When I come home this evening, I'll bring you something nice.
Just like our good old Santa Claus, who plods thro' snow And ice,
To cheer the little babies, and all their stockings fill
With candies, cakes And playthings, I promise you I will.-Chorus.
Whene'er I see that cunning babe enrolled in childish play.
I think of many moonlight nights, which since have passed away.
When wife and I together would wander thro' the dell,
Where breezes kissed her lily brow, And tales of love we'd tell.-Chorus.
