LONG, LONG AGO.

Oh, do you remember the day we first met, so long, long ago?
No troubles or time can e'er make me forget that long, long ago.
That you gave me your love your deep blue eyes told,
Whilst I whispered mine soft And low;
We vowed to be true till the sun should grow cold,
So long, long ago.
Long, long ago; long, long ago.
Sweet hearts were we, dear, long, long ago.
But time still works changes and plays Its old game, as long, long ago;
And, dearest heart, you even not are the same as long, long ago.
Your hair is now silver, your face wrinkled o'er,
Your eyes have fore'er lost their glow;
But your heart has not changed, and I love you far more
Than long, long ago.-Refrain.
