Take Back the Engagement King.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
By W. B. Gray and G. L Spaulding.

One moonlight night one year ago a blue-eyed lass and lad,
With tear-dimmed eyes and footsteps slow, their hearts were drear and ead;
As through the quiet lane they strolled, the maiden drooped her head,
And gave the lad a band of gold, then softly to him said:

Take back the ring you cave me, take it back. Jack, I pray;
Wearing it would deprave me more than I am to-day:
To make me your wife would wrong you, grief to your heart 'twould bring;
Please take it back, I beg of you, Jack-take back the engagement ring.

I love you, Nell, and you love me, the faithful lad then said;
Forget the past and my wife be; don't blight our lives instead;
I'll honor and forgive you, Nell-through life to you I'll cling.
Her answer was a sigh, a sob-no, Jack, take back the ring.-Refrain.
