Tell me, little sweetheart, why you tremble so?
Why your cheeks are blushing, why your dear eyes glow?
Do you love me, darling? all I ask is this.
Tell me, little sweetheart, answer with a kiss.
Summer days are golden, skies are fair and bright;
Hearts are filled with sunshine, thrilled by love's delight;
Listen, little sweetheart, all I ask is this,
so you love me, darling answer with a kiss.
Tell me, little sweetheart, why your hand clasps miner
Why our hearts are beating, in love's wondrous tune?
Why are robins singing songs of purest bliss?
Have they guessed our secret? answer with a kiss.-Refrain.
Tell me, little sweetheart shall we ever part?
Will no shadows gather in your precious heart?
Can you trust me, darling? all I ask is this;
Say you love me, darling-answer with a kiss.-Refrain.
