Take Her Little Hand in Yours.
Copyright, 1891, by J. Aldrich Libbey.
Written and Composed by Felix McGlennon.

Do you know the art of love? How to woo, bill and coo?
When you meet a gentle dove, do you know how to win?
When the maiden's coy and shy, if she'll sigh when you're nigh,
You will gain her if you'll try and like this begin:

Take her little hand in yours, squeeze her little waist.
Press her gently to your heart, then her lips you'll taste-
Swear her eyes are like the stars, tell her she's divine.
Then she'll throw her arms around you and say, "I am thine, all thine."

Can you rend a maiden's eyes when they tell of love's spell?
Fain the secret she'd disguise, ah, but the love lights there-
Slow the blushes come and go, ebb and flow, don't they show
That the darling won't say no, if you'll only dare?-Chorus.

Would you gain a maiden's heart? Whisper, "Dear, do not fear,
From you I can never part, faithful I'll be for life:
Of all maidens I've e'er seen, you, I ween, are the queen."
Let her head upon you lean, whisper, "Be my wife." - Chorus.
