Yes; I'll Be Your Sweetheart.
Copyright, 1891, by The S. Brainard's Sons Co.
Words by Harry C. Clyde. Music by H. C. Verner.

Upon a golden summer day
Two children in their merry play
Pretended that they lovers were,
And he in jest had kneeled to her.
The people passing heard the plea,
If she would his dear sweetheart be;
Then, with a twinkle in her eye,
The little maid sang this reply:

Yes; I will be your sweetheart, my bonnie bright-eyed lad;
More than a friendly liking for you I've always had.
Yes: I will be your sweetheart, proud of my manly beau;
We'll be two happy lovers as on through life we go.

As time sped on they outgrew play,
And frocks and aprons laid away;
The maid to boarding school was sent,
My laddie off to college went.
Vacation came, the year was o'er;
She strolled one evening by the shore;
Upon the sand a name she traced,
Below it there this verse she placed -Refrain.

She turned around, and 'neath her gaze
There stood the lad of other days;
he took her hand, and more than this,
He printed on her lips a kiss.
"Dear lass," he said, "that kiss you got
Is for the darling little tot
Who sang to me, in childhood dear,
The words that you have written here:-Refrain.
