American Old Time Song Lyrics: 40 I Love Music
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 40
I LOVE MUSIC.
In Scotland, France and Germany, music you will hear;
The Italian loves to play the harp, he plays so soft and clear.
Sweet music always charms my ear, whatever it may be-
I love to hear Tom Moore's sweet songs, they have such harmony.
I love music, I love singing, I love dancing-it's entrancing;
I love babies, I love ladies-yes, they are all the world to me.
The Irish songs are soft and sweet, they harmonize so well,
"The Meeting of the Waters," or, "The Emigrant's Farewell."
There's Bobby Burns, the great Scotch poet, whose memory shall reign
In Scotland, where he lived and died, and honored was his name.- Chorus.
In speaking of our poets great, there's one now whom I'll name,
His praise is sung both far and near, he's well known for his fame;
'Tis of William Cullen Bryant I speak, who Americans will adore;
His works are read throughout tins world, from this to foreign shore. - Chorus.
