I Want to Be Somebody's Darling.

I want to he somebody's darling, I'm tired of living alone;
I sigh for a dear little kingdom, to be queen upon somebody's throne;
Sweeter are the flowers in springtime, bright is the dew on the rose,
but 'tis sweeter to be some one's darling than a poor girl whom nobody knows.
I want to be somebody's darling in a home by the sea-girdled shore.
Where I shall be wailing for Charlie, to meet me with smiles at the door;
And mother she scolds me for flirting, you know, but what can a poor gill do.
For this world would be nothing without the love of a heart that is tender and true.
I want to be somebody's darling before I am aged and gray;
I'll start on life's journey with some one to help me along on the way;
And when I am waiting to bid you good-bye, with a heart that is light and free.
You may know that I'm somebody's darling, just ready to sail o'er the sea.
