A pretty little charmer with blue eyes,
That's Louise, my sweetheart Lou;
A girl who makes you think that she's an angel in disguise,
Is winsome Lou, the one that I adore;
Her smile is like a burst of sunlight
From gloomy skies above;
In all this world there's not one girl
Can compare with Lou, the one I love.
Sweetheart Lou, I love you;
Days come, days go, still my love remains the same;
The sun shines brighter, my heart seems lighter
Ever since you came.
Some day we'll have a cozy little home,
Just us two, my sweetheart Lou;
You'll be the queen, my darling, and I'll worship at your throne,
Love will reign supreme forevermore;
Your heart will never know a sorrow
While I am by your side;
I'll always love you, darling mine,
No matter whate'er may betide.- Chorus.
