YOU ARE THE GIRL I LOVE.
Copyright, 1895, by The S. Brainard's Sons Co.
Words by Margaret Gonzalez. Music by Max S. Witt.
I have a secret to tell you, listen do;
I love a charming maiden good and true;
She is as fair as the sunlight, as true as the stars above;
To her I've given my heart, for she's the girl I love.
Dearest one, to you I give my heart;
Be my own, never again to part;
True I'll be as the stars above:
Promise you'll be mine, for you are the girl I love.
Soon I will marry this maid with eyes so blue,
For she has promised me her love so true;
I know she will not deceive me, she's true as the stars above;
I long to call her my own, for she'd the girl I love.- Refrain.
