You're The Same Old Girl

Year 1913

Words by Joe Young and Harry Williams
Music by Bert Grant

Harry Williams Music Co. Inc.
164 West 46th Street
New York

  First Verse
'Tis many years today since we were married, just twenty years of happiness and bliss, and from each others side we've never tarried, I'm mighty proud, my dear, to tell you this.

Second Verse
Do you recall the day I brought the ring, dear? love's sweetest story then to you I told, remember when I placed it on your finger, I said that you were worth your weight in gold.

Chorus
You're the same old girl, I really must admit that you're the same old girl, you haven't changed a bit, altho' today you're somewhat gray, it's easy to be seen, you're sweeter now at forty than you were at sweet sixteen, and you're the same old girl for years, my dear, it seems that you're the same old girl I've worshipped in my dreams, and I love you as I never loved before, what's more: even tho' we're young no longer, bless your heart, my love is stronger, for the same old girl.

Some Day I'll Make You Care

Year 1916

  First Verse
Nothing but shadows and sorrow, where sunshine and gladness should be, I'm longing just for tomorrow, then I know you'll come back to me.

Second Verse
I know I'll never forget you, tho' you think that you will forget, God is so just he won't let you, and some day he'll make you regret.

Chorus
Some day you'll be sorry then you'll plead in vain, when you've learned to yearn, you'll turn right back to me again, think of all the sorrow, you have made me bear, but God will send you back in the end, some day I'll make you care.

Is my lover false or true, or only fooling me, tell me my Fairy Moon. Is he coming out tonight to meet his little girl, come to spoon? I will meet him at the gate and for his loving kiss I'll wait, for you know I love him so, won't you make him hurry I'm as lonesome as can be, he's so slow.

Can't you see I'm lonely now, where can my sweetheart be, tell me my Fairy Moon. Does he love another girl instead of little me, Fairy Moon?

It Takes A Little Rain With The Sunshine To Make The World Go Round

It Takes A Little Rain With The Sunshine To Make The World Go Round

Year

Words by Ballard MacDonald
Music by Harry Carroll

Shapiro, Bernstein and Co.
Broadway and 39th St.
New York

  First Verse
A dear little girl and a dear little boy looked out at the drizzling rain, and tears filled her eyes and ran down her cheeks, like the drops on the window pane; so he said: "Don't you cry, you will see bye and bye, that a rainbow bright will shine on high, there are always rain clouds in the sky, and I'll tell you sweetheart why:"

Second Verse
The dear little girl and the dear little boy grew up as most children do, and one summer day they went wandering away, on the road that makes one of two; she was sweet he was good, and they loved as they should, till a dark cloud came, do what they could, but she said she'd make up if he would, for she always understood:

Chorus
'Cause it takes a little rain with the sunshine, like the tear drops come with the smiles; but the troubles never come all at one time, just wait a little while, remember, flowers couldn't grow without rain, dear, happiness we share with the pain, dear, 'cause it takes a little rain with the sunshine to make the world go around.

In The Heart Of The City That Has No Heart

In The Heart Of The City That Has No Heart

Year 1913

Words by Thos. S. Allen
Music by Joseph M. Daly

Daly Music Publisher
665 Washington Street
Boston, Mass.

  First Verse
She wanted to roam so she left the old home, The old people's hearts were sore, she longed for the sights and the bright city lights where hundreds had gone before. She went to the heart of the city and mingled with strangers there, but nobody said "You are being misled" for what did the stranger care.

Second Verse
A year passes by, there's a tear in her eye, and sorrow is on her brow, Oh! what would she do if the old people knew, she couldn't go back home now. Her dear mother said when they parted "Remember your good old name" then her daddy said "Rather we'd see you dead than bring us disgrace and shame."

Chorus
In the heart of the city that has no heart that's where they meet, and that's where they part, the current of vice had proved too strong so the poor little girlie just drifted along nobody cared if she lived or died nobody cared if she laughed or cried, she's just lost a sister and nobody's missed her, she's there in the city where there's no pity in the city that has no heart.

Shades Of Night

Shades Of Night

Year 1916

Music by L. Wolfe Gilbert
Music by Anatol Friedland
and Malvin Franklin

Jos. W. Stern and Co.
102-104 W. 38th Street
New York

  First Verse
When all nature goes to sleep, Master Cupid starts to peep; love chimes ringing love's sweet song, happy hours, for the birds and flowers; time for love is drawing near, mating time is here; now that day is done, two hearts beat as one, while the moon and stars appear.

Second Verse
Hark to the songs of the whippoor wills, while the sun sets over the hills touch of nature makes all kin, hearts are filled with pleasure every lover's treasure; children close their drowsy eyes, dew falls from the skies, seems from everywhere, sweethearts here and there, life's a dream of Paradise

Chorus
Shades of night are falling, hear the love birds calling from trees above, sweethearts silhouetting, time and care forgetting, in the spell of love. Twinkle, twinkle little love star, twinkle while the moon beams with delight, nighttime casting shadows over golden meadows love time comes with shades of night.

One Wonderful Night

Year 1914

Words by E. Clinton Keithley and Joe Lyons
Music by Clarence M. Jones

Frank K. Root and Co.

  First Verse
From afar in the sky stars were gleaming the moon softly shone from above, happy was I in my dreaming, happy in dreams of love; in your eyes then the lovelight was beaming, yearning was my heart for thee, clasped in your arms "One Wonderful Night" You told me you loved me.

Second Verse
Seems I hear in the twilight your calling, I watch, dear, and wait there for you, softly like dew that is falling, comes back a love we knew; then I know by the throb of my heart, dear, just why I'm longing for thee, I can't forget "One Wonderful night" You told me you loved me.

Chorus
Love me, love me again, won't you love me again? My heart's yearning, I'm lonely, I love, love you only; dreaming, dreaming of you, always dreaming of you, take me back once again, dear, to "One wonderful night."
