A WEE LITTLE BOY AND A WEE LITTLE GIRL.

Words and Music by J. Herbert long.
A wee little boy and a wee little girl
Were playing one day in the park,
While near them I lingered, half-hidden from view,
Amused at each childish remark;
They laughed and they chatted and prattled away,
In happy and innocent bliss;
And the boy put his arm 'round the wee little girl,
And gave her a sweet little kiss.
To the wee little girl said the wee little boy,
"O, Dollie, I'm not very old;
But you know that I'm true, and my heart is for you,
My love is too great to be told."
To the wee little boy said the wee little girl,
"O Freddie, I'd give you my hand,
But you know we're too young to marry just yet,
So wait till you are a big man."
A shadow of sorrow come o'er his young face,
A picture of hopeless despair;
And sadly he gazed, with true love in his eyes,
On the wee girl with bright golden hair:
"O Dollie, my heart is all broken in two;
Please tell me you love me, I pray;
Please say you'll be mine, and a preacher I'll find,
And we will be married to-day." -Refrain.
The wee little boy kissed the wee girl again,
And said, "Little Dollie, my own,
I know, little girl, we're too young to be wed;
We'll wait till we older have grown."
When years had passed by, and the wee lovers grew,
They still loved each other the same;
The boy, now a man, asked the girl for her hand,
And she his dear wife then became.
To the beautiful girl said the handsome young man,
"O Dollie, my heart's full of joy;
I'm a man, it is true, but my love is for you
Since I was a wee little boy."
To the handsome young man said the beautiful girl,
"O Freddie, I gave you my hand
When a little girl, too, for some day I knew
You'd grow up to be a big man."
