Oh! How I Love Sweet Kathleen
Copyright, MDCCCXCV, by Henry J, Wehman.
Words by Charles Edwards. Music by Geo. C. Edwards.
Within our flat there dwells a maid, she's all the world to me,
And in my sleep I speak of her, and her sweet face I always see;
With a smile so sweet, she'll always greet, she's my little Irish queen;
When by her side, I'm filled with pride, for I love my sweet Kathleen.
Oh! how I love sweet Kathleen, and she's all the world to me;
She is my only guiding star, and married soon we'll be;
Her eyes like diamonds shine, and her heart is love's retreat:
I wish it were time when I could call her mine, for she's all the world to me.
Together, sparking, every night you'll see us at the door;
In a little while you'll miss her smile, for we will stand there no more;
A little cot will be our lot, for she's my little queen;
There's not a girl in all the world can equal my Kathleen.- Chorus.
