WILL YOU REMEMBER?

 

OTILLE

Ah love is so sweet in the springtime

When blossoms are fragrant in my

 

DICK

No years that are coming can bring time

To make me forget, dear, this day

 

OTILLE

I’ll love you in life’s gray December

 

BOTH

The same as I love you today

My heart ever young will remember

The thrill it new

That day in may

 

OTILLE

Sweetheart, sweetheart, sweetheart

Will you love me ever?

 

BOTH

Will you remember this day 

When we were happy in may, 

My dearest one?

 

DICK

Sweetheart, sweetheart, sweetheart

Though our paths may sever

 

BOTH

Through life’s last faint embers

Will you remember

Springtime, love-time, May?
