Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.

I have a sweetheart, and, of course, it's natural for to say
She is the sweetest little thing, so winsome and so gay;
She's Just returned to home again, her course at school is through.
To enter in society and make her first debut.

And she's seventeen to-day, pretty as a picture,
Eyes so blue and heart so true, hair of a bright and goiden hue.
Has my little Idaleen, the sweetest ever seen,
And I am going to marry her when she's eighteen.

We've been engaged almost a year, the secret no one knew.
And when I told her of the facts she scarce knew what to do:
She blushed and said, "I think it best to tell mamma our scheme.
I hardly think she will consent until I am eighteen." -Chor.

I asked her mother for her hand, she smiled and said, "Oh, no;
She's plenty time to think of that, at least, a year or so! "
I 'bought it hard to be refused, And her I love so dear
Most snare the fate along with me and wait another year. - Chorus.
