Memoryland

Memoryland

Year 1919

Words by Gus Kahn
Music by Charley Straight

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
Detroit and New York

  First Verse
Memory Land let us wander thru Memory Land won't you take me to That golden strand where I met you in childhood Come let us go where the flowers of yesterday grow Where you first whisper'd "I love you so" As we roame'd thru the wildwood Tho' each tomorrow may bring asigh We'll linger awhile in the days gone by

Second Verse
Memory Land where the skies are blue Memory Land where your heart was true Come let us drift down the stream in the gloaming Soft shadows fall on the scenes that are fairest of all And again I can hear Cupid call It is time you were roaming Leave all your sorrows and tears behind Just follow the dream trail you will find

Chorus
Memory Land Memory Land Lanes that were shady and cool Dear nights in June Pale yellow moon Soft summer breeze humm'd a wonderful tune I held your hand I kiss'd you and our hearts answer'd Love's command We drifted apart but I still own your heart When we wander thru Memory Land.

Carolina In The Morning

Carolina In The Morning

Year 1922

Words by Gus Kahn
Music by Walter Donaldson

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
Detroit and New York

  First Verse
Wishing is goodtime wasted Still it's a habit they say Wishing for sweets I've tasted That's all I do all day Maybe there's nothing wishing But speaking of wishing I'll say

Second Verse
Dreaming was meant for nighttime I live in dreams all the day I know it's not the right time But still I dream away What could be sweeter than dreaming Just dreaming and drifting away

Chorus
Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning No one could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning Where the morning glories Twine around the door Whispering pretty stories I long to hear once more Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearly early in the morning Butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup at dawning If I had Aladdin's lamp for only a day I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning.

If Daisies Could Tell What They Know

If Daisies Could Tell What They Know

Year 1920

Word and Music by Anita Owen

The Jones Music Co.
Gaiety Theatre Building
1545-7 Broadway
New York

  First Verse
Daisies have secrets all their own, They know love's story well, Though they've been questioned o'er and o'er Daisies will never tell.

Second Verse
Often I wonder if they know How dear you are to me, Often I long to tell you so, But that can never be.

Chorus
If the daises could tell what they know Would they tell my love for you? If the daisies could tell what they know Would they tell me you'd be true? Love's old story so often been told They would whisper soft and low, Every pteal of gold Would a secret unfold, If daisies could tell what they know.
