LOVE'S A MAGIC SPELL.
Copyright, 1888, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Written and Composed by Harry Starr.
There's a pathway thro' the forest, there's a nook down in the dell;
A, E, D, A, E, O, I'm ashamed to tell.
There's a spot we used to linger and my lover knows it well;
A, E, D, A, E, ah! love's a magic spell.
And upon a summer's evening, when the sun retired to sleep,
I would wait for him beneath the maple tree;
And watch the stars that one by one between the branches peep,
A, E, D, A, E, oh, my lover comes to me!
U, le, a, ah, de, o, a. le, a, ah, le. o, a, le, a, ah, de, a, ah, de, a, ah, de, a, ah, de, oh!
U, le, a, all, de, o, le, a, ah, de, o, le, a, ah, de, a, ah, de, a, ah, de, A, E.
There's a cottage by the seaside, there's a husband on the shore;
A, E, D, A, E, O, I am proud to tell.
There's a cradle in the corner, there's a baby we adore,
A, E, D, A, E, ah! love is still a spell.
And in winter, when the tempests rage and billows loudly roar,
Oh! 'tis glorious summer when my love is nigh;
And, heart to heart, we'll go through life, in peace forevermore,
A, E, D, A, E, oh, love can never die!- Yodle.
