SOMETHING SHE SAID TO JOHN
Copyright. 1896, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Charles Graham.
Eliza and John were sweethearts,
He told her to name the day
When they should he wed. but all she said was,
"John, that's for you to say."
Together, one night, 'neath the starry light,
While the man in the moon looked on,
They seemed to be awfully happy
Over something she said to John.
Something she said to John,
Something she said to John:
He kissed her there, for he did not care
If the man in the moon looked on;
A secret It seemed to be,
A secret between the three:
Said John to Eliza, no one will he wiser
Thro' what you have said to me.
Eliza and John were married,
No prettier pair could be,
The man in the moon had seen them spoon,
A very wise man is he:
She'd something to say, she told John one day,
Tho' she blushed like the rosy dawn,
They seemed in be awfully happy
Over something she said to John.- Chorus.
