TWO LITTLE EYES OF BLUE.
Copyright, 1896, by Broder A Schlam
Words and Music by Ernest Hogan.
In a cottage so neat, where the roses abound,
Dwells a couple whose hearts beat as one;
No happier fam'ly on earth can be found,
Born to them is a dear little son;
The husband comes home from his work in the night,
He kisses his dear wife so true,
And then he sings gladly this ditty so bright
To baby with dear eyes of blue:
Two little eyes of blue, peek-a-boo, I see you;
Two little eyes of blue, I love you, yes I do;
Two little eyes of blue, none on earth are so true.
My own baby boy, you're my pride and my joy, my two little eyes of blue.
All sorrows and cares will soon vanish away,
In the midst of their baby's sweet sun it.
And his childish prattle throughout the long day,
Their labor and toil soon beguiles,
See papa and baby roll over the floor,
Like playmates in their childish glee,
As mamma plays peek-a-boo behind the door,
Pa dances the boy on his knee:- Chorus.
