My Sweet Little Carrie Brown.
Copyright, 1898. by Samuel Lapin.
Words and Music by Samuel Lapin.
A young gallant knight, with seeming delight,
Was seen promenading one day.
With a sweet little lady, who chatted so gaily,
'Way down on gay Broadway.
With form so slender, arrayed in splendor,
Eyes so blue and round;
If you have met her, you cannot forget her,
My sweet little Carrie Brown.
Dearest Carrie, do not tarry, I'm your beau,
Won't you promise me to marry, I love you so:
From you I can never part. I would die of broken heart,
For to you I will be true, my Carrie Brown.
Says he, "I'll bring a diamond ring,
To show that I love sincerely,
I'll take you to all the parties and balls,
The sport you love so dearly:
You can dance and sing, do 'most anything,
Your equal can't be found:
When you I see I'm in ecstasy,
My sweet little Carrie Brown." - Cho.
