Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Darling you are the one I love
You are my turtle dove
Oh you are the one I love
You are my turtle dove
Let me hold you tight, tight, tight and with all my might
You shouldn't stay away from me, Oh, no Dorothy

Come a little closer, you are so divine
Hug and kiss me darling and tell me you are mine

Darling, I have no appetite
I can't even sleep at night
Would you please tell me what to do
I only think of you
Darling, will you marry me? I am in misery
We'll have a happy family, Oh yes Dorothy

Come a little closer, you are so divine
Hug and kiss me darling and tell me you are mine

Rest your head on my shoulder dear
And whisper in my ear
Kiss me sweet sweetie don't let me go
Oh I love you so
Tell me I am your only man, let me hold your hand
From now until eternity, Oh please Dorothy

Come a little closer, you are so divine
Hug and kiss me darling and tell me you are mine

If I live as long as Methuselah
I'll always remember
That you are my one and only girl
I love you heart and soul
No one else can take your place, darling in my embrace
No other one but you for me, cross my heart Dorothy





Come a little closer, you are so divine
Hug and kiss me darling and tell me you are mine
