VERSE 01: A maiden, coy and charming,/She fell in love, they say,/With a laddie gay and handsome,/A chum of childhood days./One balmy eye in Junetime,/When loving hearts divine,/The lad said, “Sue I have long loved you,/Say you will be mine.”
CHORUS: Be my Sweetheart,/Hug and squeeze, kiss and tease, do!/Say you will, now don’t be bashful,/I’ll be loving and tender and true/Call me dearie/If you care you will dare,/Sue, we’ll be happy, just we two,/Come be my sweetheart./heart.
VERSE 02: The maiden’s eyes were downcast,/Her cheeks were rosy red,/In his arms the lad entwined her./The moon smiled over head./The laddie then said, “Sue dear,/I love you fond and true./If you love me I will always be/Awf’ly good to you.”
