1. The time is coming soon to say goodbye,
A time of sadness it will be,
But Honey listen to my parting sigh,
And linger on awhile with me.

The stars shine above you,
Yet linger awhile;
They whisper "I love you,"
So linger awhile,
And when you have gone away,
Each hour will seem a day,
I've something to tell you,
So linger awhile.

2. Your pretty smile will always linger on,
Tho' you are many miles away,
I will be lonely dear, when you are gone,
The skies of blue will turn to gray.

Tremblante comme une ingénue,
Tu viens à notre rendezvous,
Mais tu n'es pas si tôt venue,
Que tu veux retourner chez vous:

La nuit est si belle,
Reste encor un peu;
L'amour nous appelle,
Reste encor un peu;
C'est l'heure bénie
Des douces folies,
Je t'en prie, ma mie,
Reste encor un peu.
