When The Sunbeams Are Kissing The Roses I'll Go Back To My Sweet Irish Rose

When The Sunbeams Are Kissing The Roses I'll Go Back To My Sweet Irish Rose

Year 1919

Lyrics and Music by John J. Luby

John J. Luby Publishing Co.
28 Englewood Ave.
Pawtucket Rhode Island

  First Verse
There's a place o'er the sea That's calling for me And a Colleen that I long to see With a sweet loving smile That's mine all the while And it's with her I'm longing to be.

Second Verse
How I long for the day When I'll sail away To The land where my heart found response And I'll marry my queen When shamrocks grow green And the sunbeams are kissing the rose.

Chorus
When the sunbeams are kissing the roses And the shamrocks are cover'd with dew When the meadow larks fly for their song in the sky My dear Colleen I'll come back to you. Just as sure as the Shannon is flowing I've a longing that love only knows When the sunbeams are kissing the roses I'll go back to my sweet Irish Rose.

And A Little Child Shall Lead Them

And A Little Child Shall Lead Them

Year 1906

By Charles K. Harris

Charles K. Harris
New York and Chicago

  First Verse
Mother dear, I want my Papa, Why did you send him away? For you know I love him dearly And I want him to come home and stay; You must not be angry with him Mama Every night I long for him and pray, He'll come if he knows we're lonely Surely come and kiss your tears away.

Second Verse
Just outside a little cottage Stands the Father all alone, He has heard his baby pleading For her darling Papa to come home; Softly, gently he call "Come my Angel," With a sob he folds her to his breast, I will love your Mam always Little golden heart, be now at rest.

Chorus
And a little child shall lead them, Lead them gently on their way, And a little child shall teach them, How to love more dearly every day, And she'll bring them close together So they'll ever care to stay, She's an angel sent from Heaven And will lead them gently on their way.

Make Believe

Make Believe

Year 1921

Lyrics by Benny Davis
Music by Jack Shilkret

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

  First Verse
There are times when you feel sad and blue Something's wrong you don't know what to do. When you feel that way stop and think awhile Just make believe and smile.

Second Verse
When your dearest friends have turned away And blue skies above have turned to gray. Don't worry for it may not all be true, Here's my advice to you.

Chorus
Make believe you are glad when you're sorry Sunshine will follow the rain; When things go wrong, It won't belong, Soon they'll be right again Tho' your love dreams have gone, Make believe, don't let on, Smile tho' your heart may be broken; For when bad luck departs, you will find good luck starts, don't grieve, just make believe.
