Words and Music by Wm. H. Friday, Jr.

A youth between the dances tried his faithful love to tell
Unto a sweet-faced maiden whom he thought lid love him well;
He asked her then to in- his bride, but she seemed nor. to hear;
Instead, she walked off with a friend, Jack's words still in her ear:

Say, love, yes, love, that you will marry me;
That you'll share my earthly lot, no matter what it be;
Come, love, do, love, answer with one sweet kiss:
And we'll walk on arm-in-arm, through life in bliss.

She really loved Jack, but to tease him, feigned she did not care,
And he went off, not knowing that her heart was waiting there;
Two years went by, she wished him back; She often spoke his name,
And longed to have him come and ask that question sweet again:- Chorus.

Jack thought that time and distance might make him that love forget,
But still he loved her just the same, and deep was his regret;
He crossed the sea and naked once more that she would name the day.
And she whose heart had e'er been his, this time ne'er answered "Nay!"-Cho.
