[1st verse:]

My little honey

I must be leaving

Be bright and sunny

Now don't be grieving

Just dry your tears, dear

It's not for years, dear

I'll soon return to you


Kiss me, my honey, kiss me

And say you'll miss me as I miss you

Love me, my honey, love me

Like stars above me

Say you'll be true while away ev'ry day

I'll be thinking of you

Dearie, now don't grow weary

Be bright and cheery, my honey do

So dear, before I go dear

Come here and kiss me, (Kiss, Kiss) honey I love you

[2nd verse:]

That same old moon, dear

That shines above us

Will see us soon, dear

As happy lovers

So don't you worry

For I will hurry

Right back and marry you
