Sweethearts of Old Were We.
Copyright, 1894, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Words by George Cooper. Music by Frank R. Gillis.

In the dear old days of the long ago
How bright was your smile to me;
I whispered, "Darling, I love you so,"
And the world was fair to see.
Do you still remember the rose I gave,
The parting kiss at the gate?
And the stars so bright and the summer night,
While we would linger late?

Sweethearts of old were we, dear were you unto me;
Ah, can you forget those hours when we met? Sweethearts of old were we.

Oft I see you now in the rosy lane,
And press your sweet lips so red;
Your hand I hold in my own again,
But the dream how soon it fled.
Yet that dream of bliss in my heart I keep,
The dearest life ever knew;
All this world I'd give, once again to live
O'er the bright past with you.-Refrain.
