All Over Nothing At All

All Over Nothing At All

Year 1922

Words by J. Keirn Brennan and Paul Cunningham
Music by James Rule

M. Witmark and Sons
New York

  First Verse
Our dreaming, our scheming, was all in vain One lover's quarrel brought endless pain We had a wonderful start Who ever thought we would part?

Second Verse
How could we, why should we say it's the end Is this the one break nothing can mend? When there is so much at stake Why let our hearts ache and ache?

Chorus
All over nothing at all Was our affections so small? Must I go on living like this Without the bliss Of a sweet kiss? I'm so sorry I made you cry We could patch it up if we'd try Why must we both say Good Bye All over nothing at all!

Sweetie O' Mine

Sweetie O' Mine

Year 1920

Words by Haven Gillespie
Music by Egbert Van Alstyne

Van Alstyne and Curtis, Music Publishers
177 North State Street
Chicago

  First Verse
In a sweetly perfumed spot, where only desert moonbeams creep, Pahjamah's heart is waking, is waking from its sleep, with the beat of tom-tom-tom-tom-tom across the burning sand so softly played, She hears her lover's tinkling, his tinkling serenade.

Second Verse
In her dreams Pahjamah hurries to her love at break of day, Together they are riding, they're riding far away, In the cool of evening while the camels rest within a welcome jungle glade, She listens to his tinkling, his tinkling serenade.

Chorus
Come, come to my balmy bungalow, Come with me, Pahjamah, to the jungle oh Love's oasis, a quiet resting place is, my camels wait within the palace gate, Out there, where desert breezes sigh for you, A thousand slaves will gladly live and die for you, Come, Pahjamah! my pretty, pink Pahjamah! Arise, arise, the sun is in the skies!

Out Of The East

Out Of The East

Year 1918

Words by Jean Havez
Music by Joe Rosey

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
Detroit and New York

  First Verse
Pale moon in the Eastern sky Look down where Arabs lie Smile down on the cavalcade Wake not little dark eyed maid Dreaming of a Prince so bold High up on a throne of gold Singing in a vision rare Pleading to his dream love fair

Second Verse
Far far from the desert sands Yonder in the vineyard lands There dear is the place we'll go There dear where the breezes blow Palm trees wave a welcome dear Swaying in the sunlight clear Blue skies with an opal glow Calling bid us gently go

Chorus
Oriental maiden Be my jewel laden Princess all array'd in glory Dream of love's sweet longing Tender fancies thronging Told in royal song and story See the Sphinx beguiling Pyramids are smiling To my sweet heart while in slumber All the sentimental All the Oriental Dreams are born Out of the East.

California And You

California And You

Year 1914

Words by Edgar Leslie
Music by Harry Puck

Kalmar and Puck Music Co. Inc.
New York City

  First Verse
Oh! you old Pacific coast, Oh! you land I love the most, Soon I'll be returning to you, To my sweetheart loving and true; I just mailed a little note Written to the one I miss, Just a simple little note I began by saying this.

Second Verse
Oh! you orange scented air, Oh! you train that brings me there, Ev'ry other country I see, Only makes you dearer to me; Thro' my Pullman window pane As my station's drawing near, I can hear myself again Singing in my honey's car.

Chorus
Don't you remember California in September? As we stood in the wood 'neath the beautiful sky, I made you cry When I whispered good-bye, but dearie Don't you remember That I promised I'd be true? So expect a choo choo That's bringing me back to California and you.
