Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 53
LOVE, I ADORE YOU.
Copyright, 1886, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by George Cooper. Music by Harry Osborne.
The daylight is fading in glory, my heart fondly wanders to you,
I long then to whisper that story, so sweet and so tender and true;
I know I am telling It always, yet nestle once more at my side;
I'll whisper it over and over, while beautiful eyes glow with pride.
Love, I adore you, this is my song;
All my life long, sunlight and shadow, you have my heart alone;
Love, i adore you, faithful to me say you will be;
Love, I adore you, ever, dear heart, my own.
That story so oft I'm repeating, and no little word do I miss:
Those eyes will respond to love's greeting, and lips fondly meet in a kiss.
Oh! tell me the words that I whisper will never be uttered in vain,
Altho' I have told you so often, come, list to the story again.-Refrain.
