Words by Geo. M. Cohan. Music by Charles Hirst.

I've waited long ere asking a question, dear, divine,
My love I have been masking, but now "will you be mine?"
Since first I met you, darling, you've made life's dullness shine,
So answer or my heart will break, I fear;
'Tis the love I bear for you, the love so good and true,
That bids me speak and make my story clear;
My every thought's of thee, my life's companion be,
Just answer me with one sweet word, my dear.

One sweet word, love, is all I want to hear you say,
Long I've waited, darling, answer me I pray;
Don't be augry, my loved one, this true heart is stirred,
Just let me hear you say yes, my dear-only one sweet word.

No love was e'er so true, dear-you are my one delight;
I think of none but you, dear, from early morn till night:
On my life's darkness, darling, you've thrown a shining light,
And still that one sweet yes I have not heard,
And at night my many dreams are of but you, it seems;
You are the one girl that I have preferred;
love but you alone, just say you'll be my own,
And answer me with one sweet, little word.-Chorus.
