Words and Music by Leona Foutainbleau Jerome.

Sweethearts were we, ever were side by side;
I longed for the day when you would call me bride,
Happy were we, never a thought or a care,
For life seemed to be almost too bright and fair,
Until one day we quarreled and passed each other by;
Yet, I never can forget that we were sweethearts, you and I.

We were sweethearts, loving and fond and true,
Once you loved me and I loved you;
Sweethearts, sweethearts, drifted go far apart,
Yet I never can forget you were my sweetheart.

Sweethearts were we, cloudless our sky above,
And all seemed to smile with gladness on our love;
Life, like a dream, seemed to be passing by.
And yet seemed too real to fade away and die.
'Tis long since last we parted, and though I often try,
Yet, I never can forget that we were sweethearts, you and I.-Chorus.
