My Laddie

My Laddie

Year 1919

Words by Howard E. Rogers
Music by Harry Akst

McCarthy and Fisher Inc.
224 W. 46th Street
New York City

  First Verse
Laddie of mine, you bring the sunshine, Where once were clouds of gray, Laddie of mine, how I have waited, Just for this wonderful day, Let me look upon your smiling face, Let me feel again your fond embrace.

Second Verse
Laddie of mine, I am so happy, Thrilled with your love so warm, Laddie of mine, you are the rainbow That follows after the storm, Let me press you closely to my heart, Never more, no never, shall we part.

Chorus
My laddie, my laddie, how I have missed you, Until the days have seemed like years, My laddie, my laddie, I have longed to kiss you And to have you brush away my tears, Oh laddie, my laddie, each night I prayed, dear, Prayed for your return to bring me joy, And laddie, dear laddie, my pray'rs are answered God has sent me back my laddie boy.

Sunshine Sue

Sunshine Sue

Year 1921

Word by Raymond De Witt
Music by Luther Arnoldi

Weile Pub. Co. Inc.
Saint Louis, Mo.

  First Verse
It seems I can't forget you dear, My thoughts are all of you, My heart just longs to have you near Your mem'ry haunts me too, In dreams I see you waiting there dressed in your gingham blue I kissed your tender lips with care And whispered goodbye Sue.

Second Verse
The winter days have faded dear, The birds sing melodies, 'Tis springtime and the skies are clear The leaves are on the trees, I see you standing by the gate my little Sunshine Sue As when the robin called its mate And I bid you adieu.

Chorus
In dreams I wander back again to scenes of long ago, A picture plain a flowry lane and a girl I used to know, Just like a rose a pretty rose kissed by the morning dew; When robins sing I'll bring the ring to my little Sunshine Sue.

The Little Church Around The Corner

Originally Introduced by The Alice Llloyd Co.
In "A Night In The Jardin De Danse" Under personal direction of William Morris

Shapiro, Bernstein and Co.
Corner of Broadway and 39th Street

  First Verse
Two sweethearts nestled closely underneath a maple tree, He said "I've often wonder'd if you care? You know I've loved you ever since you went to school with me, Since barefoot days, we've been most everywhere; To the old red mill that stands up on the hill, With the old gray horse and shay, to the barn that kept the hay, My love is just the same, My heart is just as true, But there is still another place that I must go with you:"

Second Verse
Same sweethearts nestled closely near a cheery fireside, But now their hair has turned to silv'ry gray, It's forty years ago today that he made her his bride, And lifes December seemed to them like May; Now the old red mill is not upon the hill, And the barn that kept the hay years ago was torn away, He kissed her dear, sweet lips. She said so happily, "It seems 'twas only yesterday that you said this to me:"

Chorus
To the little church around the corner That has the cutest set of wedding chines, Dearie, some day with a smile, We will walk down the center aisle, With hearts true, blue, We'll say "I do;" Ma and Pa will bless their happy children, As theirs did at a time now far away, There's a little church around the corner, We're getting nearer to it every day.

Chorus 2
There's a little church around the corner That has the cutest set of wedding chines, Dearie, some day with a smile, We will walk down the center aisle, With hearts true, blue, We'll say "I do;" Ma and Pa will bless their happy children, As theirs did at a time now far away, There's a little church around the corner, We're getting nearer to it every day.
