MA HONEY LOU.

Words and Music by Fred M Staia.
When the sun sets in the West, ma honey Lou,
That's the time I love thee best, ma honey Lou;
When we're sitting in the gloom waiting for the silver moon,
You makes me a happy coon, ma honey Lou.
When the birds have hushed their song, ma honey Lou,
All the twilight shadows gone, ma honey Lou,
When the moon so full and bright sheds its soft and mellow light,
Then I loves you more each night, ma honey Lou.
Ma Lou, ma Lou, ma honey Lou, love me long and love me true,
I love no one else but you, ma honey, ma honey, honey Lou.
Say you love me, honey Lou, I want you. 'deed I do!
My heart will surely break in two if I lose you, ma honey Lou.
And last night I waited long, ma honey Lou,
And I told the stars in song, ma honey Lou;
How my heart would ever beat for my honey gal so sweet.
And I lays it at your feet, ma honey Lou.
So then come to me to-night, ma honey Lou,
in these arms I'll hold you tight, ma honey Lou;
Come and look Into my eyes while the moon shines in the skies,
And I'll be in paradise, ma honey Lou.- Chor.
