Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 45
I DO LOVE YOU.
Copyright, 1894, by Frank Tousey.
Words and Music by Felix McGlennon.
Molly has climbed her dada's knee,
Molly has something to say:
Only to whisper, "I love you, dad,
And think of you all the day.
When you go out In the morning, dad,
Ah, how I long for the night:
Then you come home to your Molly dear,
And the house seems so cheerful and bright.
"I do love you. I do love you;
You've brought a dolly for your little Molly,
With hair to bright and eyes so blue.
I'll give you a kiss, a sweet little kiss,
And maybe I'll give you two.
Oh, my daddy, my dear old daddy, I do love you."
Molly has climbed on his shoulders broad"Let as play horses, my dad."
See how they scamper around the house,
And Molly is, oh, so glad.
Slyly she peeps in his pockets then,
Thinking that dad cannot see;
Ah, the young rogue knows there's something there,
And Molly is laughing with glee.- Chorus.
Molly is tired of her romp at last,
Dada must take her to bed.
"Place little dolly betide me please" -
Now Molly her prayers has said.
"Good night; God bless you, my dada, dear;
Kiss me, and kiss dolly, too.
I know you love little Molly, dad,
And you know that your Molly loves you.- Chorus.
