While strolling on the avenue one pleasant day in May,
I met my charming little Lou who stole my heart away ;
I strove to gain attention, by several little ways,
But spite of all invention she'd give no cheering rays. Oh!
Eyes of blue, softest hue.
Peeping at me with their shy roguish glances;
Charming Lou, fairest are you,
Pride of my loving heart, sweet, charming Lou.
But as the days went gliding by and her I often met,
She ceased to be so awful shy, and then I chanced to get
An introduction to her, the "one in all" to me;
An now-a secret, keep it-we're going to married be. Oh;- Chorus.
