DON'T BE ANGRY, SWEETHEART
Copyright. 1894. by Schiff & Haas.

While strolling out one evening, with Mamie by my side,
We rambled to the seashore, and there to watch the tide;
While picking shells and pebbles some angry words we had,
I spoke of former sweethearts, which made her heart feel sad.
She turned away in silence, her grief was very strong;
I wished I could recall those words, I knew that I was wrong;
I placed my arm around her waist, her head on my breast laid:
A flood of tears came to her eyes when these words to her I said:
"Don't be angry, sweetheart, do not look so blue,
I was only fooling, you know I'm always true.
Place your arms around me And kiss me once again;
Don't be angry, sweetheart, and do not cause me pain."
We started home together, the hours glided by,
It made me feel heart-broken when I heard Mamie sigh;
I told her I was hasty, no more I'll cause her pain.
At first I thought my pleadings they had been all in vain,
My darling spoke up brightly, she looked into my eyes;
Her face, before in anger, was graced with charming smiles.
To me 'twas like a stormy day, when sunshine follows rain;
I pressed her to my bosom, and then I sang this refrain:-Refrain.
