Words and Music by Charles K. Harris

"Do not turn away, my darling, listen for one moment, pray,
And I'll tell you how I love you. for I'm sure you'll not say nay.
Don't be cruel to me, sweetheart, d" not cast my love away,
Heart to heart and lips together, let us join to-day."

"Leonie, Leonie, you are the queen of my heart;
I love, I adore you, from you I can never part.
What is life without you, what is this world to me?
Leonie, Leonie, my Idol and queen of my heart."

"Why that sigh when I draw nigh, love; why those tears upon your cheek?
Have I been unkind, my darling? Tell me, sweetheart, why you weep.
There is something in your eyes, love, tells me that my love gives pain;
Answer, darling, answer truly, are my dreams In vain?" - Chorus.

Then she murmured to her lover, "You must not speak, love, to me,
I am promised to another, and to him must faithful be.
I have longed, with heart-felt yearning, for this night with all Its pain,
Yet I never dreamed you loved me, now 'tis all in vain." - Chorus.
