Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 57
WHEN YOU'RE IN LOVE.
Copyright, 1897, by T. B Harms & Co.
Words and music by Bonnie Thornton.
I'll sing you a song of sweet love, love, it was made for us all,
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all;
The choicest of gifts from above is the mystery that we call love;
'Tis youth's fondest pleasure, and old age's treasure, is love, sweet love.
Oh, my! what a sensation when you're in love,
You can feel the vibration when you're in love;
Kissing is sweet occupation when you're in love,
A very strange feeling come over you stealing when you're in love.
Oh, what magic there is in love, what bliss no one can express,
Your soul seems to soar above when you feel its kiss or caress;
It whispers to young and to old just as soft as the coo of a dove.
But love will not tarry, so make haste and marry, for love, sweet love.
