From the Show:             Sweet And Low  1930 (S)


There's a cheerful little earful
Gosh I miss it something fearful
And this cheerful little earful
Is the well known "I love you."

Stocks can go down, bus'ness slow down
But the milk and honey flow down
With a cheerful little earful
Of the well known "I love you."

In ev'ry play it's a set phrase
What the public get phrase
But as a pet phrase it'll do do do
Soft and cu-it
Make me happy, you can do it.

With a cheerful little earful
Of the well known "I love you."
