Mollie Darling.

Wont you tell me ,Mollie darling,
That you love none else but me?
For I love you,Mollie darling
You are all the world to me.
Tell me darling that yu love me.
Put your little hand in mine.
Take my heart sweet Mollie darling
Say that you will give me thine.

Chorus:
Mollie, fairest, sweetest, dearest,
Look up darling, tell me this:
Do you love me Mollie darling?
Let your answer be a kiss.

Stars are shining, Mollie darling
Through the mistic vale of night.
They seem laughing, Mollie darling,
While fair Luna gives us light.
No one listens but the flowers
While they bow their heads in shame.
They are modest, Mollie darling,
When they hear me call your name.

I must leave you, Mollie darling,
Though the parting gives me pain.
When the stars shine, Mollie darling
I will meet you here again.
Goodnight, Mollie, Goodbye, loved one,
Happy may you ever be.
When you’re dreaming, Mollie darling,
Don’t forget to dream of me’.
