Feather Your Nest

Feather Your Nest

Year 1920

By Kendis and Brockman and Howard Johnson

Leo Feist Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
Oh sweetheart mine, it's wedding time, The whole world seems to say; The summer days are fading, Into loveland let us stray; Birds sing merrily, High up in each tree, And, sweetheart, they sing messages, Just for you and me.

Second Verse
You heart is beating peacefully When friends are fond and true, The world is filled with gladness When the one you love loves you; Mountains or the sea over we may roam, The path that leands to love, sweet love, Leads to home sweet home.

Chorus
The birds are humminh, "go feather your nest," Tomorrow's coming so feather your nest, It's time for mating, no use hesitating, The parson is waiting, he knows just whether it's best; In a home for two, love, together we'll rest, Where only true love, can weather the test; Don't be delaying, the ogran is playing, The whole world is saying, "Go feather your nest."

Louisiana

Louisiana

Year 1920

Lyrics by Arthur Freed
Music by Oliver G. Wallace

Sherman, Clay and Co.
San Francisco

  First Verse
Each time I hear a robin sining, I picture fields of sugar cane Louisiana land of sunshine, I long to be there once again

Second Verse
Down in an old moss covered cottage, That's where I always long to be There is no palace could replace it, For it is home sweet home to me

Chorus
Louisiana, Memry of the olden ways My old sweetheart In those good old barefoot days Blue skies and Blue eyes That is all I seem to see Louisiana, I can hear your message to me.

If I Had My Way

If I Had My Way

Year 1913

Music by James Kendis
Words by Lou. Klein

Introduced in Vaudeville with Unprecedented Success by Ethel Green

Maurice Richmond Music Co.
145 West 45th St.
New York City

  First Verse
I'd like to make your golden dreams come true, dear, If I only had my way, A paradise this world would seem to you, dear, If I only had my way.

Second Verse
You'd never know a care, a pain, or sorrow, If I only had my way, I'd fill your cup of happiness tomorrow, If I only had my way.

Chorus
If I had my way, dear, forever there'd be a garden of roses for you and for me, A thousand and one things, dear, I would do, Just for you, just for you. If I had my way we would never grow old, And sunshine I'd bring every day, You would reign all alone, like a queen on a throne, If I had my way.

Do You Ever Think Of Me

Do You Ever Think Of Me

Year 1920

Lyric by Harry D. Kerr and John Cooper
Music by Earl Burtnett

Sherman, Clay and Co.
San Francisco

  First Verse
When love in to my dreams was creeping I gave my heart in to your keeping It brought the harvest I am reaping And I always wonder now

Second Verse
When summer twilight's gently falling I'd love to know if you're recalling Your tender words to me enthralling And my heart is wond'ring still

Chorus
When you have anothers arms about you, Do you ever think of me When you whisper "I can't live without you," Do you ever think of me And when your eyes disguise the same old loving lies, You tell so tenderly Deep in your heart unfeeling When some heart you're stealing do you ever think of me.
