VERSE 01: There's a girl lives by the Swanee River,/ "Angel Eyes," I call her "Angel Eyes"/ Just a bunch of sweetness all a-quiver,/ With a love, a love that never dies./ Like a wireless message thro' the moonlight,/ Down the lane, I hear her calling me./ For she always knows when it is spoon-night/ When I sing this melody.
CHORUS: Angel Eyes, Dear Angel Eyes/ Angel Eyes, Sweet Angel Eyes/ When I listen to you murmur sweet and low,/ Seems to me I hear that Swanee River flow./ Angel Eyes My heart it sighs/ Angel Eyes For you it cries/The stars that shine up in the Southern skies/ They remind me of you, Angel Eyes.
VERSE 02: When the candle lights are brightly gleaming,/ On the shore, the Swanee River shore,/ On the bank you'll find us sweetly dreaming,/ Tender tales, I whisper o'er and o'er./ Glow-worms in the grasses brightly shining,/ Shining like the love light in her eye./ Seem to know her little heart is pining/ Once again to hear me sigh.
