IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Meet Me Tonight

IRVING BERLIN
"Meet Me Tonight"

[1st verse:]
Molly's dad and mother
Sister and her brother
Went to see an uncle
Leaving Molly all alone
Molly on her own hook
Took the telephone book
Soon Miss Central heard this conversation o'er the phone
"Now Charlie, dear, I need your company
And if you want to prove your love to me

[Refrain:]
Meet me tonight, meet me tonight
Bring down your kisses, I'll be there with mine all right
We'll start out at seven, spoon until eleven
Then we'll start for "Home Sweet Home's" a pretty ditty
Meet me tonight, meet me tonight
Don't disappoint me, honor bright
Love and kisses we'll be pawning
Till the yawning, dawning, morning
If you meet me tonight

[2nd verse:]
Charlie met Miss Molly
They got feeling jolly
Talked a while, then walked a mile
Then had another talk
They grew tired of talking
They grew tired of walking
Then to make things lively, for a change they took a walk
That morning when he left her at the door
She whisper'd, "If you'd like to walk some more
