Year 1919

Words by Lew Brown and Ed Moran Music by Roy Ingraham

Broadway Music Corporation
145 W. 45th St.

  First Verse
Mabel used to worry, Mabel used to pout, she said, "Oh! will my darling Jack be the same when he gets back." Mabel got a cable, now Mabel doesn't doubt, it read "My dear, I'm leaving here, my program's all mapped out."

Second Verse
Mabel swept the parlor, brought it up to date, she fixed the sofa where it would be in a place where none could see. Mabel now is nervous for she can hardly wait she wrote to Jack, said "Hurry back I think your plans are great."

Chorus
We'll stroll through the park just as we used to do we'll go for a lark just as we used to do we'll sit in the parlor and turn the lights down low right on my knee is where you'll be and oh! oh! oh! we'll hug and squeeze just as we used to do; we'll kiss and tease, just as we used to do your dad will yell, "turn up that light," and what else can we do, we'll have to kiss and say "Good night" just as we used to do.

Underneath Hawaiian Skies

Underneath Hawaiian Skies

Year 1920

Words by Ernie Erdman
Music by Fred Rose

Leo Feist Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
Where the tropic breezes play, where the palm trees bend and sway, there a lonely maiden sighs, underneath Hawaiian skies. Every night beneath the moon, you can hear a lonesome croon, calling out across the bay, to her lover far away.

Second Verse
Moonbeams kiss the silvry sand, where they wandered, hand in hand, tears be-dim two soft brown eyes, underneath Hawaiian skies. Sweet Hawaiian melodies, bring to her fond memories, of a love that used to be, as she calls across the sea.

Chorus
Come back to the shores of Honolulu, I'm so lonely here without you, underneath Hawaiian skies, tell me am I waiting all in vain, dear? say you're coming back again dear, to a land that's paradise. (Can't you hear me calling?) Come back where each tiny star that twinkles, and each steel guitar that tinkles breathes of love that never dies; sometime I just know you'll be returning, to a heart that's always yearning, underneath Hawaiian skies.

By The Sapphire Sea

By The Sapphire Sea

Year 1922

Words by Harry B. Smith and Francis Wheeler
Music by Ted Snyder

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

  First Verse
Somewhere over there by the Sapphire Sea, the whispering palm tress are calling me; to skies ever blue, there alone with you, is where I am longing to be. The world we'll forget and your lips and eyes, will show me the way to love's paradise, to that land of summertime far away, I'm going to take you someday.

Second Verse
On that sunny island, the roses rare, are blooming to give us a welcome there; and we'll be alone, in a world our own, forgetting all trouble and care. We'll watch by the sea while the sails go by, till the stars shine above in the evening sky, you'll rest in my arms while the moon beams bright, and dream through the midsummer night.

Chorus
Merrily we'll sail upon the Sapphire Sea, to a little isle where happy we will be where moon beams bright, kiss you each night beside the silver waves we'll be together. While the stars are shining through the waving palms, sweetheart, I will hold you in my loving arms and life will seem, just like a dream, with you beside the Sapphire Sea.

Ever since the world began, kisses have been tempting man, though the kisses have helped to make history it's funny different they can be.

There's the kiss that you get from baby, there's the kiss that you get from dad, there's the kiss that you get from mother, that's the first real kiss you had, there's the kiss of a tender meeting, other kisses you recall, but the kisses I get from you sweetheart, are the sweetest kisses of all.

  First Verse
You've heard of the lamp of Aladdin what wonderful things it could do if I had it today, I'd rub it and say here's all that I want of you, Oh won't you

That wonderful lamp of the fable brought jewels and treasures galore if Aladdin lived now, I feel that somehow these are the things he'd ask for, Oh won't you

Chorus
Bring back those happy days of childhood, won't you bring back the lane down in the wildwood that would lead us to the dear old swimming pool everytime that we played hooky on the way to school, oh, bring back the simple girls in gingham, won't you bring back the good old songs and sing 'em what a joy 'twould be both for you and me could we bring back those wonderful days.

Chorus 2
Bring back the dinners for a quarter, won't you bring back the milk without the water and the great big thick and tender juicy steaks long before our limit was a tack of victr'y cakes oh, bring back the eggs at ten a dozen won't you bring back the bread that wheat once was in you can laugh and joke but we're all dead broke, won't you bring back those wonderful days.

Chorus 3
Bring back the pantomimes of Hanlon, won't you bring back the lullabies of Scanlon and the friends who always take you out and treat and the janitors who used to give us lots of heat, oh, bring back the days before the "Gimmies" won't you bring back the dance without the "Shimmies" drinking ginger ale makes us weak and pale won't you bring back those wonderful days.
