Lyrics

Lyrics:
First verse
Dear little girl, have I made you sad? Your lips are trembling so! Those bitter tears will drive me mad, Jealous of me I know! Do you believe there's another girl, Do you believe me untrue? Tho' I have wandered in life's gay whirl, You've called me back to you.
Chorus
I'm sorry, dear, so sorry, dear, I'm sorry I made you cry! Won't you forget? won't you forgive? don't let us say goodbye! One little word, one little smile, one little kiss won't you try? It breaks my heart to hear you sigh, I'm sorry I made you cry! I'm sorry, dear, so sorry, dear, I'm sorry I made you cry! Won't you forget? won't you forgive? don't let us say goodbye! One little word, one little smile, one little kiss won't you try? It breaks my heart to hear you sigh, I'm sorry I made you cry!
Second verse
Roses enrapture my thoughts with love, You are in ev'ry rose, And like the golden sun above, Your smile with heaven glows! My soul is thrill'd when the songbirds sing, I hear your voice calling me! Come let us woo like the birds in spring, Oh, listen to my plea!
(Chorus)
