Those Days Are Over

  First Verse
Let's take a look in memry's book back to the days of yore Back to the school old swimmin' pool wel'll just be kids once more Let's wander back where we used to sit and dram Down by the old mill stream

Second Verse
Let's climb the hill down by the mill pile on the old bob sled Coasting we'll go roll in the snow until our cheecks grow red Oh for the days of the olden golden pas They were too goo to last.

Chorus
Where are the days of long ago? Those days are over those days are over all over Where is the barefoot bashful beau? the one who wrote "I love you so" Oh! Sweet childhood days so dear to you and me Sweet wildwood ways are just a memory Gee! but it makes me sad some how Those days are over over now.

What Do You Mean By Loving Somebody Else Whe Your Love Belongs To Me

What Do You Mean By Loving Somebody Else Whe Your Love Belongs To Me

Year 1919

Words by Sidney D. Mitchell
Music by Archie Gottler

Leo Feist Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
I've been worried all day long, 'Cause I know there's something wrong, Tho' I've tried hard to smile, I have known all the while, You're not as true as I've been to you. But before I let you go, Here's one thing I'd like to know:

Second Verse
Every time I look at you, I don't know just what to do. I can tell by your eyes are telling me lie, you'll go away and leave me someday. But before we say farewell, There's thing you'll have to tell:

Chorus
What do you mean by loving somebody else, When your love belongs to me? I found you when your kisses didn't have the taste, But now they've got the flavor, must they go to waste? What do you mean by teaching somebody else, All the things you learned from me? Just because I taught you how to roll your eyes, You don't have to run around and advertise, What do mean by loving somebody else, When your love belongs to me?

Oh Mr. Dream Man (Please Let Me Dream Some More)

Oh Mr. Dream Man (Please Let Me Dream Some More)

Year 1917

By Jimmie V. Monaco

Harry Von Tilzer Music Publisher Co.
125 W. 43 St.
New York

  First Verse
Talk about your funny dreams, I had one of them, it seems, And it made me feel so goody, goody, 'Twasn't sad. Nothing bad Just about some one that I could love. If this dream does not come true, Then I know what will I will do; I will kneel don on my knees and pray until I dream and dream and this I'll say:

Second Verse
I'd be satisfied with life, Just to be his little wife, I would and squeeze and tease and please him Night and day, Till he'd say: "You're the one that I've been looking for." Oh, I wish he would be mine, I would love him all the time! Then I know I'd be so happy, happy, No more would I pray and need to say:

Chorus
Oh, Mister Dream Man, please let me dream some more, Just like the dream I had the night before, I dreamt about a lovin' man, he was so sweet! And when he started lovin' me, my heart began to beat, And when he kissed me, H-m-m-m-m-m! He made me ask for more. He's a prize I idolize his great big dreamy dark brown eyes, Oh, Mister Dream Man I want to dream some more.

That Tumble Down Shack In Athlone

That Tumble Down Shack In Athlone

Year 1918

Words by Richard W. Pascoe
Music by Monte Carlo and Alma Sanders

Waterson Berlin Snyder and Co.
Strand Theatre Building
Broadway at 47th St.
New York

  First Verse
I'm a long way from home and my thoughts ever roam To ould Erin far over the sea; For my heart it is there, where the skies are so fair And ould Ireland is calling for me.

Second Verse
There are eyes that are sad, as they watch for a lad, In the old fashioned town of Athlone; And I pray for the day, when I'm sailing away, To ould Ireland, and mother, my own.

Chorus
Oh! I want to go back to that tumble down shack, Where the wild roses bloom 'round the door; Just to pillow my head, in that ould trundle bed, Just to see my ould mother once more. There's a bright gleaming light, guiding me home tonight, Down the long road of white cobble stone; Down the road that leads back, to that tumble down shack, To that tumble down shack in Athlone.

When The Sun Goes Down In Romany (My Heart Goes Roaming Back To You)

Year 1916

Words by Sam M. Lewis and Joe Young
Music by Bert Grant

Waterson Berlin Snyder and Co.
Strand Theatre Building
Broadway at 47th St.
New York

  First Verse
Dearie, dearie, Far across the deep blue sea; Dearie, dearie, Do you ever think of me? When the Autumn leaves are turning My thoughts turn to home; Is there still a love light burning, Far across the foam? Dearie, dearie, Tell me, are we both alone?

Second Verse
Lonely, lonely, Think how lonely I must be; Lonely, lonely, No one seems to pity me. I can see the corn a swaying In the candle light, Staying where I left you prayinh, "Lead his footsteps right." Lonely, lonely, say a pray'r for me tonight.

Chorus
When the sun goes down in Romany, My heart goes roaming back to you; Through the dells the chapel bells are calling, THere's a grief for every leaf that's falling, Like a tipsy gypsy I just wandered, Far from all the loved ones that I knew, But dearie, When the sun goes down in Romany, My heart goes roaming back to you.
