Why Should You Wait till To-Morrow.
Copyright, 1896, by A. M. Hall.
Words and Music by Charles Graham.
"Why were you late to-night." she said, "you never used to let me wait?"
Forgive me, love, he said to her as he approached the cottage gate;
He saw the teardrops in her eye, as they strolled down the same old way.
Said she, "When shall we married be?" "To-night," he said, "I cannot say.'
Why should you wait till to-morrow, give me your answer to-night-
Have I loved you to my sorrow, once all the future looked bright;
Why should we wait till to-morrow; tell me the truth, dear heart.
If you no longer love me, said she, tis best for us to part.
"You cannot tell me now," she suit!, as slowly home they took their way.
"Farewell," he whispered at the gate. Good-bye was all she had to say.
She heard the marriage bells one morn. He said "'twas father's last advice."
Another girl with wealth had won, the first became love's sacrifice. Refrain.
