'Cause You're Sweeter than the Rest.
Copyright. MDCCCXCVI, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Charles Shackford.

Two little tots were gazing Into a candy store.
They had no shoes or stockings on, just gingham frocks, no more;
He said, "I choose the candyman, you know I saw it first."
She said, "That's, what I wanted," then in tears she burst:

"You know you are my sweetheart, so you may have first choice,"
She wiped her tears away and said, "I'm sorry I was cross;
I don't want any candyman, for I like you the best,
You know you are my sweetheart, 'cause your sweeter than the rest."

They saw their playmates sitting on Mullen's old push-cart,
A German band began to play, just over in the park;
The boys and girls then made a ring, each held his sweetheart's hand,
And all joined in the Chorus with the German band:- Chorus.
