[Verse 1]
On the Summer shore,
Where the breakers roar,
Lovers sat on the glistening sand.
And they talked of love,
While the moon above,
And the stars seemed to understand.
Then she grew more cold,
And he grew more bold,
Till she tho’t that they had better go.
But altho’ he heard,
He not even stirred.
Only murmured in tones soft and low.

Cuddle up a little closer, Lovely mine.
Cuddle up and be my little clinging vine.
Like to feel your cheek so rosy,
Like to make you comfy, cozy.
Cause I love for head to toesie
Lovely mine.

[Verse 2]
Then she deigned to rest,
On his manly chest,
Her dear head with its flowing curls.
And she said, “I’d stay,
On this lap for aye,
How I envy the Capland girls.
‘Mid the ice and snow,
Has no steamheat when he comes to call.
Not a single glim,
So its up to him,
To whisper in summer or fall.”
