These digital collections have been created from historical documents that reflect the sensibilities of creators in historical times and may contain opinions, language, images, or other content that modern readers may find offensive. The Lear Center and Connecticut College do not endorse the attitudes expressed therein. The Lear Center presents these documents as part of the historical record and recognizes the imperative not to alter it. In some cases, it may be possible to add notes or comments correcting verified errors, but these exceptions will not be applied in a way that changes the appearance of the authentic record.


[Verse 1]
Sweetheart, I know that I adore you;
Love you more and more each day.
And when it’s plain I live just for you,
Do you wonder that I say.

[Verse 2]
You’ve brought the sunshine and the flowers
To a life that once seemed drear
You’ve brought so many precious hours,
It’s not strange I love you, dear.

Idolizing you is all that seems worthwhile
And by your side
I’ll linger too because of your dear smile.
I love the eyes that mean my happiness,
I prize the lips I fondly press,
Why idolizing you is all that seems worthwhile.
