American Old Time Song Lyrics: 42 Margery

Copyright, 1893, by T. D. Harms & Co.
Written and Composed by Arthur West.
There's a pair of bright blue eyes, and they smile on me;
They're as bright as summer skies and brimming full of glee.
They belong to Margery, the darling of my heart;
When I leave her at the gute I say before we part:
"Margery, Margery! meet me, love, at the corner,
I'll be there at six o'clock, us faithful as can be;
Though the nights are getting cold, our love is warmer and warmer;
If you're there the first, my dear Margery, wait for me."
There's a pair of loving arms which I would not miss,
There's a little rosebud mouth that's waiting for a kiss;
There's a pair of fairy feet, a fancy dream to see,
And a wreath of golden hair-they all belong to me.-Refrain.
When the sun has gone to rest ev'ry night I'm there,
With her head upon my breast feel a millionaire:
When I get the golden ring she'll name the happy day.
She'll be queen and I'll be king, and no more need to say:-Refrain.
