American Old Time Song Lyrics: 40 My Little Sunbeam
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 40
MY LITTLE SUNBEAM.
Written by E. L. O'Connor.
Ton are my little sunbeam that, shines upon my life.
From out the darksome shadows to ease my bitter strife;
In you I hope to find much congenial, bright and gay,
Society, variety, forever And for aye.
You are my little sunbeam, astray from fairy-land;
And, pray, who was it sent thee with Mab's magnetic wand?
Your blithesome features win me from bach'lorhood's domain,
I can't resist the pleading your eyes expressly claim;
They softly tell their meaning the lips would fain disclose,
Revealingly, so feelingly, that only true love knows- Chorus.
And do I love thee, sweetness? Let that my heart confess,
For thee I find a longing I can't nor dare suppress;
'Tis every whisper tells me that blows from land or sea.
So sweetly, completely, myself I give to thee.- Chorus.
