Dear one, Dear one, I realize,
In your arms, I found Paradise,
And though the time is near to say ‘Goodbye,” I hate to go
For I love you so, Oh!
Dear one, Dear one, let me confess,
In your arms, I find happiness
When we’re alone, the world is all our own.
My heart’s at ease;
That’s just why I tease
Let me linger longer in your arms,
Give me all your sweet and tender charms
While the stars are twinkling up adobe you,
Let me tell you just much I love you.
Wond’rous night of bliss, a hug, a kiss,
I’ve been waiting only just for this,
So while the moon is shining through the palms,
Let me linger longer in your arms.
Friend, Cliff and Baer, Abel, "Let Me Linger Longer In Your Arms" (1925). Historic Sheet Music Collection. 1809.
