ONLY A LOVING KISS.
Copyright, MDCCCXCV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words by Geo. Dittmar. Music by Louis Dittmar.
There is something that you want to tell me, love,
I can read it in your eyes;
None, shall know our secret but the stars above
That are twinkling in the sky.
Won't you tell me, will you not confide in me?
True friends always should agree;
Dave I guessed your little secret
That you really care for me?
Only a loving kiss her answer that she gave me,
Only a gentle sigh, her secret It did tell;
Only a tender look, our hearts were then united,
Only a fond caress from her I love so well.
You have told me in a loving kiss to-night
More than many words express;
Let me, darling, fold you in my arms once more,
And your loving form caress.
Won't you let me hear your answer once again,
Say that nothing us will part?
Only let me hear your gentle voice exclaim:
"I am yours, my own sweetheart." - Chorus.
