When The Angelus Is Ringing

When The Angelus Is Ringing

Year 1914

By Joe Young and Bert Grant

Waterson Berlin Snyder Co.
112 West 38th Street
New York

  First Verse
Love time, love time can't you understand when it is love time Birds sing bells ring, love just seems to ring with every chime, Ding dong dong ding, loves messages they bring

Second Verse
Two hearts true hearts all the world is full of loving sweet hearts I'll bring the ring, to the pealing of each silvry chime, Ding dong dong ding, all nature seems in rhyme.

Chorus
When the angelus is ringing in the belfry on the hill And the whirpoolwill is singing in the night, when all is still, I am waiting for the time when I can come to you and sing loves sweet song. While the silvry bells peal out their dong ding dong, Down the road of love we'll wander 'mid the violets perfume to the little cottage yonder when we'll spend our honeymoon; And as we go through life from year to year, Cares and worries disappear, when the angelus is ringing, dear.

Beautiful Annabell Lee

Beautiful Annabell Lee

Year 1920

Words by Alfred Bryan and Artie Mehlinger
Music by George W. Meyer

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York

  First Verse
Many years ago down beside the sea All the love I know fill'd this heart o' me She was all the world to me and all the heaven too In the daysthat used to be when only skies were blue

Second Verse
Came a breeze one night from the winter skies And my rose of white Closed her starry eyes Every night I look for her along the lonely shore But the night wind like the raven answers "never more"

Chorus
Beautiful Annabell Lee left me alone by the sea She was like a tender flower that blooms in May But the angels came and took her away one day Beautiful Annabell Lee gone for eternity now the robins sing to me Oh how I wish they'd bring to me my beautiful Annabell Lee

Crooning

Crooning

Year 1921

Music by Willaim F. Caesar
Lyrics by Al. Dubin and Herbert Weise

M. Witmark and Sons
New York

  First Verse
Everynight beneath the love moon Sweet heart, when we steal away All we do is croon a love tune When you're in love there's never much to say:

Second Verse
While our hearts are sweetly blending in such perfect harmony let there never be an ending to love's own little dreamy melody:

Chorus
We're crooning, just crooning, the night time away Planning and dreaming, day after day, Just hoping that sometime we'll both harmonize In our own little love nest, crooning lullabies.

Eyes That Say I Love You

Eyes That Say I Love You

Year 1919

By Fred Fisher

McCarthy and Fisher Inc.
224 W. 46th St.
New York

  First Verse
I've often heard it said that eyes are just windows of the soul, And in that little game of love, they play the leading role, I've studided every color, and learn'd to realize, The wondrous charm that lies within a pair of roguish eyes.

Second Verse
A mother tells her baby just by looking in its eyes, A doctor with a single glance, knows where the trouble lies, We tell a cook that's clever that she must Hooverize, But you can't teel a woman just by looking in her eyes.

Chorus
Eyes that are always telling lies, naughty eyes, Eyes that are blue or grey What do they want to make those eyes at me for, at you for, Just to steal your heart away, Eyes that can fool the very wise, Wicked eyes, Eyes that can look you thru, But of all the eyes I see, only two look good to me, They're the eyes that say "I love you."
