IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Before I Go And Marry, I Will Have A Talk With You

IRVING BERLIN
"Before I Go And Marry, I Will Have A Talk With You"

[1st verse:]
Jealous little maid was sadly crying
Crying 'cause her little heart was hurt
Told her fellow there was no denying
She saw him flirt
Fellow whispers, "Let your heart be cheery
Won't you let me dry those tears away?
Be your own sweet self and cuddle near me
There is something sweet I want to say"

[Refrain:]
I may take a walk with Dolly
I may smile at pretty May
I may have a talk with Molly
Or with Polly, or even Fay
I may flirt with charming Carrie
As another boy would do
But before I go and marry
I will have a talk with you

[2nd verse:]
"When I noticed something sweet in Molly
That's the time I loved your baby smile
When I saw how cute and neat was Dolly
I liked your style
Fellows raved to me about a prize, dear
Meaning Carrie's pretty eyes of blue
So I went and gazed into her eyes, dear
That's the day I fell in love with you
