Sweet Lorraine

(Cliff Burwell/ Mitchell Parish – 1928)

I just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy
With another brand new choo-choo toy
Since I met my sweet Lorraine

A pair of eyes
That are bluer than the summer skies
When you see them you will realize
Why I love my sweet Lorraine

When it's raining, I don't miss the sun
‘Cause it's in my sweetie’s smile
Just to think that I'm the lucky one
Who will lead her down the aisle

Each night I pray
That no one will steal her heart away
Just can't wait until that happy day
When I marry sweet Lorraine
