You Made Me Forget How To Cry

You Made Me Forget How To Cry

Year 1920

Words by Sam M. Lewis and Joe Young
Music by Maurice Abrahams

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
Strand Theatre Building
New York

  First Verse
I tried to forget I was lonesome and blue, I tried not to frown and complain. I tried to forget all the sadness I knew, I tried but it all seemed in vain. When you came a long like the dawn of a day, You drove all the darkness away.

Second Verse
I'll never forget there were clouds in the skies, I tried to forget they were drear. I'll never forget that light in your eyes, Just made all the clouds for your head, The day that my lonely heart said:

Chorus
You made me forget how to cry, little girl A world full of sighs, Put clouds in my eyes I prayed for sunshine, Time and time again; You were the sunshine that follwoed the rain. For I never knew how to smile little girl My heart wouldn't even let me try. But you seemed to be a God send to me, 'Cause you made me forget how to cry.'

Stolen Kisses

Stolen Kisses

Year 1921

Words by Francis Wheeler
Music by Ted Snyder

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
Strand Theatre Building
Broadway at 47th Street
New York

  First Verse
Time, dear, is fleeting, And my heart is beating; It just keeps repeating, "Steal another kiss." Oh! how I'm yearning, With a love that's burning; Just for returning, of those stolen kisses.

Second Verse
With moonlight gleaming, I just start in dreaming; And I'm always scheming, How to steal a kiss. There's one impression, That demands expression; It's a grave confession, and it goes like this dear.

Chorus
Stolen kisses sweet, Made our joy complete. That's when first I knew, Each kiss had me captured, enraptured. Of all the world's great bliss, There's none like love's first kiss. I'd give the world just to enfold you, hold you; And steal another kiss from you.

Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes

Year 1920

Words by Harry B. Smith
Music by Otto Motzan and M. K. Jerome

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
Strand Theatre Building
New York

  First Verse
If you love me why don't you tell me so? What's the use of always saying "no?" For now and then your secret I surmise when I look in your eyes.

Second Verse
I've often wondered if you really knew, All your laughing eyes tell me of you. You might as well confess and name the day if they mean all they say.

Chorus
Bright eyes I know you so well Bright eyes what secrets you tell I can't believe a word you say Your eyes are traitors, they give you away. Bright eyes they give me a thrill Bright eyes just say what you will; There is a meaning you cannot disguise in your bright eyes.
