Dreaming of you and your eyes of blue

I've loved you forever it seems
I had longed for you dear wanted you near
You are the girl of my dreams.
Although I have met you just now
I'd tell you of my love somehow
If I could but win your heart little girl
Then I would have treasure untold.
The kisses you gave me in lifeЈ§s sweetest dreams
Are even more precious than gold
I love your sweet face and your dear smiling eyes
How often that storyЈ§s been told.




If I could but win your heart little girl
Then I would have treasure untold...
