[Verse 1]
Ever since we have met I have longed for the day,
When at last I could call you my own;
Ever since we have met I have wanted to say,
That I loved you, and you, dear, alone.
So now, if my secret you know very well,
That you are the one I love best,
There’s a nice little spot this sweet story to tell,
So I’d like very much to suggest.

[Chorus]
Meet me where the lanterns glow,
And softly come and go
Like stars above you;
Let me whisper in your ear,
And try to tell you, dear,
How much I love you.
Let your eyes look into mine,
And see the love divine
That there is showing,
Only say, you will be mine,
While the lanterns light is glowing.

[Verse 2]
When this nice little spot we have came to at last,
Where the light is mysterious and dim;
And the way that he looks sets your heart beating fast,
While you’re just as attractive to him.
So if I am the man, while you are the maid,
My feelings you’ll quite understand;
And you’ll promise at last in the soft golden shade,
That you’ll give me your heart and your hand.

[Chorus]
