Singing ‘bout you Sal ‘cause you are my gal
Just to let you know how much I love you
Dreaming ‘bout you too, sweetheart, honest, true,
all the live long day I’m thinking of you,
Ain’t no other song down where I belong,
ain’t no other gal I want to kiss
I don’t care for gold,
I just want to hold someone in my arms and whisper this.
I don’t want a little cosy corner
I don’t want a hammock built for two,
I don’t want a palm tree tall and shady,
I don’t want a little birch canoe,
I just want a place close by the fireside
In the twilight, when the day is thro’
I just want two things in all this wide, wide world,
Just a little rocking chair and you.
Waiting for me Sal? You’re a good old gal
I just love to put my arms about you
Let your dear head rest, right here on my breast,
wonder what I’d ever do without you,
You will always be all this world to me,
All my heart belongs to you alone
Let me kiss you Sal,
There now, good-night gal,
Sweetest dreams for you, my love, my own.
