I want to tell you a story
A story of love’s sweet refrain
Filled with adventure and glory
All over and over again
Strange are thecapers of cupid,
Strolling ‘long love’s broadway
Tho’ the story is old ‘tis the sweetest that’s told
So dearie I just want to say

I’d love to live in Loveland with a girl like you
And ev’ry day a holiday, with skies of baby blue
Where roses bloom forever and sweethearts are always true
I’d love to live in Loveland with a girl like you

Ev’ry things lovely in Loveland
Where ev’ry heart’s beating in tune
Like turtle doves are in doveland
And life seems a grand honey moon
There we can stroll in the moonlight,
By babbling brooks we’ll stray
Won’t you come girl of mine to that wonderful clime,
And lovelight will show us the say
