My little honey, I must be leaving,
Be bright and sunny, now don’t be grieving;
Just dry your tears, dear, it’s not for years, dear,
I’ll soon return to you.
Kiss me, my honey, kiss me,
And say you’ll miss me as I’ll miss you;
Love me, my honey, love me,
Like stars above me, say you’ll be true while away ev’ry day, I’ll be thinking of you,
That same old moon, dear, that shines above us,
Will see us soon, dear, as happy lovers,
So don’t you worry, for I will hurry,
Right back and marry you.
Dearie, now don’t grow weary, be bright and cheery, my honey do,
So dear, before I go, dear, come here and kiss me (kiss, kiss)
Honey, I love you.
