Goodbye Little Girl Of My Dreams

Goodbye Little Girl Of My Dreams

Year 1913

Words by Richard Howard
Music by Fred Phillips

F.B. Javiland Pub Co.
New Zealand Building
Broadway and 37th St.
New York

  First Verse
I wonder and wonder, if there'll come a day, when the girl of my dreams will exist. I wonder and wonder and hope that there may, For only in dreams we kissed. I see her fair face every night in my dreams, it's as sweet as the roses that bloom, But soon it is morn and then she is gone, So I say as she fades with the moon.

Second Verse
There's millions of girls in this beautiful world, there's a girl for each boy so they say; So I'll wait thro' the years 'till my dream girl appears, For I know I shall meet her some day How happy I'd be at the break of the dawn, Just to find her at rest in my arms, Never more have to sigh, Never more say goobye, To the girl of those wonderful charms.

Chorus
Goodbye little girl of my dreams Goodbye little girl of my dreams, I'd like to feel, That you are real, For you are mine it seems, Lovelight in your eyes brightly gleams, You say just for me that it beams So I'll love only thee, Tho' in dreams it may be, Goodbye little girl of my dreams.

You Broke My Heart To Pass The Time Away

You Broke My Heart To Pass The Time Away

Year 1913

Music by Leo Wood
Words by Joe Goodwin

Leo Feist
Feist Building
New York City

  First Verse
You've said goodbye and everything is over now it seems, And all you left behind for me were dreams, just shattered dreams; For you were all I had, the only happiness I knew, You went away without a word, you proved your love untrue.

Second Verse
I see you as I saw you on the day we two first met, You seemed as an angel from above your smile I can't forget; The smiles that made me think, perhaps, some day for me you'll care, The smile that promised untold joy, but left me in despair

Chorus
You never meant the kisses that you gave me, I've paid with tears for every bit of joy, You made a plaything of my heart, the heart I gave to you, You broke it like a child would break a toy; The love you gave was like a fading flower, The kind of love that lives for just a day, But forgive you, dear, I will, God knows, I love you still, Tho' you broke my heart, to pass the time away.

The Curse Of An Aching Heart

The Curse Of An Aching Heart

Year 1913

Words by Henry Fink
Music by Al. Piantadosi

Leo Feist
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
You made me think you cared for me, And I believed in you, You told me things you never meant, And made me think them true. I gambled in the game of love, I played my heart and lost, I'm now a wreck, Upon life's sea, Alone I pay the cost.

Second Verse
The dreams I dreamed of future joys You smiled on though you knew, Deep down within your faithless heart, They never come true, Still further on you lead me till my paradise I saw, Then with one word you banished all my hopes for evermore.

Chorus
You made me what I am today, I hope you're satisfied, You dragged and dragged me down until my soul within me died; You've shattered each and every dream, You fooled me from the start, And though you're not true, May God bless you, That's the curse of an aching heart.

I Love The Whole United States

I Love The Whole United States

Year 1918

Words by Roger Lewis
Music by Ernie Erdman

Tell Taylor Music Publisher
Chicago New York

  First Verse
A soldier from the SOuth and a soldier from the North who fought each other back in sixty-two Met on the street one day one wore a suit of grey, The other wore a tattered suit of blue, One said he loved the South the best the other said the North. They argued till the tears came to their eyes But Dixie's son, a boy in blue said: Gentlemen the war is through, So love the flag no matter where it flies.

Second Verse
The soldier from the North and the solider from the South were listening to the soldier boy in blue They shook each other's hand, and seemed to understand, That they should love old Uncle Sammy too, They marched together down the street as comrades ought to do. The war is over and they were satisfied, And Dixie's son, the boy in blue, at last was mighty happy too, And to himself again he softly sighed:

Chorus
I love the whole United States from Boston Massachusetts to Frisco's golden gates, the cotton fields of Dixie the Maple trees of Maine, the mountains of Virginia I love them all the same, I love the fields of Illinois and Georgia where my sweetheart waits every city large and small in Yankeeland I love them all I love the whole United States.
