STROLLING ON THE BEACH.
Copyright, 1895, by The S. Brainard's Sons Co.
Words and Music by W. H. Krell.
While strolling on the beach one day, I met a charming girl,
A side-long glance my heart entranced and set my brain a-whirl;
I never knew two eyes of blue e'er my heart could reach,
Till cupid's dart had pierced my heart, while strolling on the beach.
As we stroll upon the beach, after the sun is down,
I hear remarks from ev'ry side, "There's the sweetest girl in town."
I love her and she loves me, happiness came to each,
When upon that summer's day we met down on the beach.
While dancing at the ball one evening to the music sweet,
The charming idol of my heart, again I chanced to meet:
We strolled into a cozy nook that no one else could reach,
And then I told her how I lost my heart upon the beach.-Refrain.
Now every evening when the moon is shining on the sand,
If e'er you chance to pass that way, you'll see us hand in hand;
For just a year has flown away, a happy year for each,
And now as man and wife we stroll upon the same old beach.- Refrain.
