Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 55
I'M PROUD I HAVE A SWEET HEART.
Copyright, 1897, by J. M. Himelman.
Words and Music by Max I. Fischel.
There Is to me no other girl who Is so dear as she,
Who comes to me When I am near and sits upon my knee;
There's laughter in her sparkling eyes, there's sunshine in her hair,
And of the maidens that I know there's none that is so fair.
I'm proud I have a sweetheart, one that I know loves me,
Who's childish ways I cherish, who's face I only see;
I'm proud I have a sweetheart as pure as heaven above,
I never can forget her for she's my only love.
Whene'er she smiles it seems to me as if the night were day,
And If her love was lost to me my life would lose its May;
For with her smile my heart leaps up and throbs with fierce delight.
She's all In all this world to me, so winsome, gay And bright.- Chorus.
