From the Show: Two Little Girls In Blue 1921 (S)
Honeymoon, I never have seen you shine.
Honeymoon, sorrow fills this heart of mine.
Ev'rywhere fond hearts are glowing;
Lovers' eyes the love-light showing.
Honeymoon, all alone I sit and pine.
When night is falling,
I miss you, Honeymoon;
Love sings no golden tune to me.
No voice enthralling
Fills me with happiness;
No lover smiles on me caressingly.
My heart keeps calling
And so I turn to you;
Oh, won't you listen to my plea?
Dear Honeymoon, till you send love to me,
My poor heart will be gloomy.
Tell me, when will you shine on me?*
*Originally and in the published version:
Tell me, when will you shine for me?
