MAMMA'S LITTLE SWEETHEART
Copyright, MDCCCXCVI, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.
Mamma's little sweetheart, busy all the day.
Chasing golden sunbeams that through the lattice stray,
Never seems of tiring 'till evening shadows bring
Gentle sleep and mamma sweet her evening song to sing:
Sweetheart, sweetheart, mamma's little sweetheart,
Close your weary eyes so bright,
Dream your baby dreams all Right.
Sweetheart, sweetheart, mamma's pride and joy:
Angels dear will hover near mamma's little sweetheart.
Mamma's little sweetheart, when the day is done,
Watching at the window for some one dear to come-
Romping 'round with papa 'till sandman comes along,
Dreamy eyes and sweet bye-byes, then mamma's evening song:- Cho.
