In Siam

In Siam

Year 1919

Lyrics by A Burden
Music by Johnny Cooper

Leo Feist Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
Love awaits me in a distant land, Siam, Soon I'm going' to start my caravan, I am Speeding, thro' the night her call I'm heeding, I can see her standing where our love began in Siam.

Second Verse
When the nightingale has brought his song to you, Then you'll know my coming won't be long, I'm true, Gleaming, like the stars in your eyes are beaming, You are waiting where the peacock spreads his fan, In Siam.

Chorus
Dimpled shadows that play, 'Neath the cool mountains spray, Mocks the light in her eyes, Finding there a sweet paradise, With her soft jeweled hands, She is weaving the strands, That shall bind loves demands When I am in Siam.

Just Because You're You That's Why I Love You

Just Because You're You That's Why I Love You

Year 1922

By Roy Turk and J. Russel Robinson

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
New York

  First Verse
Cupid's dart, pierced my heart; when I first met you. Now it seems, My love dreams, Have at last come true. No one yet, That I've met Thrilled me with a glance; No other one, 'Neath the sun, Stands a chance.

Second Verse
Hours fly, when you're nigh; angel from above. When you're gone, They seem long, Proving I'm in love. Let's away, Don't delay, Apple of my eye; I'll live for you, Love you true, This is why

Chorus
Just because you're you, That's why I love you. Just because you're you, what more can I say? I've lost my appetite Can't sleep a wink at night My mind's not working right; And you made me this way. Something in your style won me completely; That I'd fall so deep in love I never knew. And still the reason's very simple, it's not your smile or dimple, It's just because you're you.

I Know What It Means To Be Lonesome

I Know What It Means To Be Lonesome

Year 1919

By Kendis, Brockman and Vincent

Leo Feist Co.
Feist Building
New York City

  First Verse
I never knew, I would miss you, Until you went away, Now I can see, what you were to me, My heart just seems to say:

Second Verse
Hope seems to say, There'll come a day Your smiles again I'll see, My love is true, and you know it too, Come back, Come back to me.

Chorus
I know what it means to be lonesome, I know how it feels to be blue, I know what it means to long in my dreams, for someone, for someone, I've sighed and I've cried since we parted, There's no one knows what I've gone through; I'd give all that I own, just to have you back home, I'm lonesome, so lonesome for you.
