I’ll be All Smiles Tonight, Love .

I’ll deck my brow with roses,
The loved one may be there.
The gems that others gave me
Will shine within my hair.
And even those that know me
Will think my heart is light.
Though my heart will break to morrow
I’ll be all smiles to night.

Chorus.

I’ll be all smiles tonight, love
I’ll be all smiles to-night.
Though my heart may break to-morrow
I’ll be all smiles to-night.

And when the room he entered ,
The bride upon his arm,
I stood and gazed upon him
As if he were a charm.
So once he smiled upon her,
So once he smiled on me.
They know not what I suffered,
They found no change in me.


And when the dance is ended,
Oh how I will rejoice.
I’ll sing the songs he taught me
Without one faltering voice.
When flatterers come around me,
They will think my heart is light.
Though my heart will break to morrow,
I’ll be all smiles to night.

And when the dance is ended,
And all have gone to rest,
I’ll think of him,dear Mother,
The one that I love best.
He once did love,believe me,
But now’s grown cold and strange.
He sought not to deceive me,
False friends have wrought this change .
