Words by Henry S. Leigh. Music by W. C. Schroder.

How fondly I remember yet your sweet and sunny face;
I can't forget the hour we met, and Can't forget the place.
A little time away It seems, about a day or so;
Our life is made of little dreams; 'twas not so long ago.
Ah me! what silly things we say, what silly things are done.
When youth and pleasure lead the way, and folks are twenty-one!
Like angry waves the cruel years have tossed me to and fro;
And yet how close the past appears, 'twas not so-long ago. [Dance.]

I recollect the tender talk we held along the lane;
Our dialogue throughout the walk was fervid, though insane.
You hovered long, it seems to me, between a "Yes" or "No,"
I've ne'er forgotten, that you see 'twas not so long ago.
Ah me! what silly things we say, etc.
