A Little Birch Canoe And You

A Little Birch Canoe And You

Year 1918

Music by Lee S. Roberts
Lyrics by J. Will Callahan

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  Verse
The glow is in the West, The birds gone to rest, The hour I love the best is here, When fancy takes its wing, When the bells of evening ring, And mem'ry seems to bring you nearer; And here beside the stream, Within the sunset gleam, My one and only dream comes true, The world is fair and fine And all I want is mine, A little birch canoe and you. Dreaming dear, At the close of day I'm dreaming, Dreaming here Where once I stood with you; Dreaming dear, And the world with joy is teeming While I'm dreaming Here by my birch canoe. The glow is in the West, The birds have gone to rest, The hour I love the best is here, When fancy takes its wing, When the bells of evening ring, And mem'ry seems to bring you nearer; And here beside the stream, Within the sunset gleam, My one and only dream comes true, The world is fair and fine, And all I want is mine, A little birch canoe and you.

You'll Be The One (Not Me)

You'll Be The One (Not Me)

Year 1920

By Harry Pease and Ed. G. Nelson

Joe Morris Music Co.
1599 Broadway, NY.
New York City

  First Verse
You say we're going to part, You think you're breaking my heart, Though we've been sweethearts, that's true, I'll never cry over you.

Second Verse
After you've been through the test, You're just the same as the rest; You've always kept me in doubt, I'm glad that I found out.

Chorus
You'll be the one to be lonseome, You'll be the one to feel blue; You're leaving me now, You're breaking your vow, But I know that you will be sorry somehow; You'll be the one to be sighing, Trying to find sympathy; I played and I lost, but who'll pay the cost? You'll be the one, not me.

When Shall We Meet Again

When Shall We Meet Again

Year 1921

Words by Raymond B. Egan
Music by Richard A. Whiting

Introduced by Connor Twins with Gus Edward's Revue

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  First Verse
The fairest sky or the brightest eye May cloud with the word "au revoir" A tear may seek out the fairest cheek To stain when a friendship is o'er Each night brings someone a goodbye kiss Each night some sweetheart is wond'ring this

Second Verse
And who knows why lips that love must sigh The heart aching word of "farewell" In every breast this unbidden guest The grief of a parting may dwell Who knows the where for the why or when Who knows if ever we'll meet again

Chorus
When shall we meet again After this "Au revoir" dear Will you still love me then Or will our dream be over dear Will you cast the new love aside for me Or Just smile to think you once sight'd for me All will be answer'd when We two shall meet again.
