Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 46
VENUS, MY SHINING LOVE.
Copyright. 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Geo. M. Cohan.
Most ev'ry one has a sweetheart
With beautiful eyes that shine;
I'm not acquainted with your love,
But you're well acquainted with mine.
Excelling all other ladies,
Fairer than any by far;
You must admit that the brightest of all
Is Venus, my shining star.
Venus, beautiful Venus, how bright you shine;
None shall e'er come between as, sweet Venus mine.
None as bright as my darling so far up above-
Venus, my beautiful Venus, my shining love.
But with them I disagree:
Not a cross word has been altered
'Twixt Venus, my loved one, and me.
Leading my star to the altar
Was my most beautiful dream;
When I compare her with Saturn or Mars,
Lake darkness to her they seem.- Chorus.
