Words and Music by Joseph Hart.

I have a pretty sweetheart whom I tease;
he is waiting now for me to say
When his true and loving wife I'll be;
I've promised I would tell him every day;
he is the only one I ever loved;
Last evening as he kissed me good-bye
He asked me to promise next eve we'd wed,
And to him I made this reply:

Teddy! Teddy! I'll be ready-ready with a heart so true-
By the gate at half-past eight, love, I will watch for you;
Do not tarry, then we'll marry, for my heart you carry, Teddy;
Good-night, sleep tight, pleasant dreams-I love you, yes I do!

Oh, every evening when no one is near,
And all nature seems to be at rest,
In a little quiet, shady nook.
There my love he tries to test;
Enraptured with sweet bliss, he steals a kiss;
As homeward we would slowly stray,
When in front of my door he would ask once more,
And to him I softly would say:-Chorus.
