Little lady of my dreams,
Since the day we met,
Ev'ry other girly seems easy to forget.
On this heart of mine,
I have placed a sign,
"No room to let."
When your sweet and winning smiles,
And your tender eyes,
You have brought me miles and miles
Nearer paradise.
Ev'ry joy I know
Here on earth below,
I know I owe to you, dear Dolly, Dolly, sad or gay,
There is something charming about you.
Something sweet that seems to say
Life would be empty for me without you.
Dolly, Dolly, When you're near,
Clouds and shadows all disappear,
And the stars above you, spell the words,
"I love you, Dolly, Dolly Dear."
When you're near,
