You're Some Pretty Doll

You're Some Pretty Doll

Year 1917

Words and Music by Clarence Williams

Williams and Piron, Music Publishers
1315 Tulane Ave.
New Orleans, LA.

  First Verse
Now listen Dolly come over here There's something I must whisper in your ear You've got me hanging 'round you like a child It seems as if you're goin' to drive me wild These words I tell you are really true And what I say I'll surely do, Oh! you're cute and handsome I can't help but fall You're just a perfect Doll.

Second Verse
Your baby ways and your loving smile It sets my heart jumping all the while Those charming little curls and dimples too They make me know that it is you, just you I wonder if your Dear heart is mine If so, it is a joy divine, Oh! won't you tell me and put my heart at ease Oh! for a loving squeeze

Chorus
You're so pretty Oh! so pretty You're some pretty doll, You've got the kind of eyes that seem to talk They make me get so nervous that I have to walk Oh! I love you, how I love you, more and more each day; You've got some smile, you're pretty too And I've a million dollars that I'll spend on you 'Cause you're so pretty, Oh! so pretty, You're some pretty doll.

Till We Meet Again

Year 1918

Music by Richard A. Whiting

Jerome H. Remick and Co.

  First Verse
There's a song in the land of the lily Each sweetheart has heard with a sigh Over high garden walls This sweet echo falls As a soldier boy whispers goodbye

Second Verse
Tho' goodbye means the birth of a tear drop Hello means the birth of a smile And the smile will erase The tear blighting trace When we meet in the after awhile

Chorus
Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu When the clouds roll by I'll come to you Then the skies will seem more blue Down in lovers lane my dearie Wedding bells ring so merrily Every tear will be a memory So wait and pray each night for me Till we meet again.

Bring Back The Sunshine Again

Bring Back The Sunshine Again

Year 1920

Words and Music by Joseph Kendrick Coons

Elk Music Co. Inc.
Binghamton, New York

  First Verse
I never knew why a rosebud fades When the world from the sunlight grows dim I never knew that the dew was tears, Caused by the memries of what might have been; Your smile was the sunshine that gave me life, and your kiss was my heaven so blue My tears are falling and my soul is calling for life to me dear means just you.

Second Verse
I tell the stars above ev'ry night above Just to guide you and keep you from tears Night breezes in sympathy sigh too, When ever your lovely vision appears; I've tried hard to teach my heart to forget, but my efforts have been all in vain Still I keep saying and I'm always praying that some day we may meet again.

Chorus
Bring back the beautiful sunshine, the sunshine will bring back the flow'rs Song birds will come at your calling and Paradise will be ours Love like a beggar comes pleading and pleading should not be in vain So won't you come back like the birds in the springtime and bring back the sunshine again.

My American Beauty Rose

My American Beauty Rose

Year 1910

By Harry H. Zickel

Kalamazoo Corset Co.
Kalamazoo, Mich.

  First Verse
You may talk about your girlies, girlies here and everyhere, Girls from Norway, Sweden, Italy, and Spain, Saffron girls from far off China, German girls with flaxen hair; Girls from Russia, Turkey, pretty girls and plain... Not for me your Enlglish beauty, or your girl with wooden shoes, And for me the girls of France no longer pose; While the Scotch and Irish lassies, really, I must now refuse, For my own, my fair American Beauty Rose...

Second Verse
She is regal in her beauty, she is queenly in her grace, Yet there's warmth and love and passion in her heart,... And a smile of true affection seems to glorify her face, As I read the message, "only death can part." Take the charms of all the dear ones, all that's sweetest, all that's best, 'Till you've found the fairest, rarest, Flow'r that grows; In this sum of all perfection, glowing far above the rest, You will find my own American Beauty Rose.

Chorus
Oh you loving, happy Yankee girl.... You're the one who sets my heart awhirl,... You are charming, pretty, wise and kind, And a dearer, sweeter one no man can find;... In your glorious cheeks and skin and eyes,... Our Red, White and Blue so bravely flies;..... And my heart's all for you, You're true blue thru and thru, You're my own American Beauty Rose.
