Come Back To Playland With Me

Come Back To Playland With Me

Year 1912

Written and Sung By Maud Lambert

M. Witmark and Sons

  First Verse
The lovelight is bright in your eye, dear, Mem'ries are bringing you joy, I know you are thinking of childhood, The land of the girl and the boy; Come let's have day dreams together, Wander once more hand in hand Back to those days with their boy and girl ways, Playmates in dear old Playland:

Second Verse
Lets visit the old fashioned haunts, dear, Travel on memories train, And soon we'll be strolling through childhood, Our hearts will be glad once again Let's linger long o'er each fancy, Each one will bring joy and sublime, Each passing year will enfold charms so dear, Playmates at dear old Playtime:

Chorus
Playland, Playland, Land of nursery rhymes Boys and girls in golden curls, "Ring a rosey" times, Childish games we played, dear, When our hearts were free, Mem'ries embraces will bring old faces, So come back to Playland with me.

Nobody Knows And Nobody Seems To Care

Nobody Knows And Nobody Seems To Care

Year 1919

By Irving Berlin

Irving Berlin, Inc.
1587 Broadway
New York City

  First Verse
I'm sad and lonely, There's a good reason why Nobody cares about me That's why I'm sad as can be I long for someone Somebody, yes indeed Lovin' kisses from one, Is exactly what I need

Second Verse
I'd love a sweetie, Hanging around the place Someone to worry about I'd never want to go out My home is gloomy Nobody's there that's why I feel "bride and groomy" Can't you see it in my eye

Chorus
Many's the time I feel so lonesome But nobody knows, And nobody cares I've grown so tired of being by "my own some" I want somebody to hug, Cuddle and snug as comfy as a bug in the rug, Many's the time I feel like spooning, But nobody knows and nobody cares I guess I'll make out a little "ad" That I want some lovin so bad 'Cause nobody knows and nobody seems to care.

I Miss You Honey, Miss You All The Time

I Miss You Honey, Miss You All The Time

Year 1911

By Charles K. Harris

Published by Chas. K. Harris

  First Verse
I can see a picture of a cottage In a valley 'neath a Southern sky, I can see her standing 'mid the flowers. Where we plighted troth, my love and I; Just a lovers quarrel, then we parted, She may love another, I suppose But my heart goes out to her with yearning, And I wonder if my Honey knows.

Second Verse
Violets are growing in the meadow, Honey suckles twine around her door, I can see her in the grassy orchard. Over her the pink white blossoms pour; There is something calls me back to Honey, 'Tis no use, I'm going home today, Take her in my arms once more and tell her, How I longed to see her and to say.

Chorus
Oh, how I miss you Honey, miss you, Could I only kiss you, kiss you, If I could but hold you in my arms again; For, oh, my heart is sad and weary Just for you, my little dearie, How I miss you, honey, miss you all the time.

Auf Wiedersehn Fraulein

Auf Wiedersehn Fraulein

Year 1907

By J. Fred Helf

Featured by Al. H Wilson The Singing Ambassador of German Dialect

Hitland Music Publishers
Elf and Hager Co.
43 W. 28th St.
New York

  First Verse
Fraulein mine, the silvry Rhine is gleaming in the moonlight, The trumpets blast Has come at last Upon this silent June night. Your tear dimmed eyes like star lit skies, Look into mine with yearning, They plead in vain, Auf Wiedersehn, Some day I'll be returning.

Second Verse
Fraulein mine, though stars may shine, And foaming steins be clinking, By campfires bright, A toast each night, To you I will be drinking. No dark eyed maid I'll serenade, Our tale of love to hinder, To each I'll vow, I've got a Frau, And half a dozen kinder.

Chorus
There's a smile on your lips Fraulein darling, There are tears in your eyes of blue, And the sound of the trumpet is calling, Fare thee well, fare thee well to you. Though we part, still my heart will be yearning, Till we meet by the beautiful Rhine, Fraulein mine, for Auld Lang Syne, down by the Rhine we'll drink a stein, Auf Wiedersehn, Fraulein!
