Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 52
I ONLY KNOW I LOVE HER SO.
Copyright. 1896, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Geo. Hassell.
There's a girl I love far more than tongue can tell;
Her heart is mine and mine alone,
And to me no sweeter girl on earth doth dwell,
For she's the sunlight of my home;
I care not if no one beside
Her beauty e'er can know,
For I know her smiles are just for me alone,
I know I love her so.
I only know I love her so, no purer bliss care I to know:
Whate'er betide, no thought beside, I only know I love her so.
At the close of day she meets me at the door;
Her smiling face with love aglow,
And her arms entwine as tho' to loose no more;
No purer love could mortal know;
My faithful wife is all in all,
Life's stream does smoothly flow,
Just a smile, a kiss, a whisper-
What befalls, be sure I love her so.-Refrain.
