DELLA LEE, YOU'RE FOOLING ME
Copyright. 1897, by Carleton, Cavanagh & Co.
Words by Robert Robinson. Music by Chas. Robinson.
I've lost my heart, for I'm in love with a girl that I adore,
She's all the hobby, she dresses so nobby, admirers she has by the score;
You couldn't help but love this girl, for she has such winning ways,
And every time that I greet her, these words to her I sing:
Delia Lee, you're fooling me, now don't you think It's wrong?
I love you dearly and sincerely, my love for you Is strong;
Why do you tarry, let's go And marry, happy both we will be,
I'll get you a home And we'll live there alone, if you only marry me.
Now, Delia Lee, you can't fool me, for I know your roguish way,
You're quite a jolly, but that's only folly, don't wait for a rainy day,
But just say yes and I'll do the rest, to-morrow you'll have the ring,
And after the wedding is over, no more these words I'll sing:- Chorus.
