Oh Will You Be My Honey Babe?

A Ragtime Song (to the tune of Grace Bolen's "Smoky Topaz")


I'm so in love with you, I can't deny
That you are my sweetums, and I'd just die
If you went away, I couldn't say
What I might do if you forsake me.
All day long I'm thinking only of you,
How can I convince you that my love is true?
I couldn't survive, I'd just take a dive
If you refuse to take me.

CHORUS ("trio" section)

Oh will you be my honey babe
And come and live with me?
We'll have a grand love nest,
And soon there will be three.
Oh will you be my honey babe,
Just be my gal so fine?
We'll make the perfect couple,
I'll be yours if you'll be mine!
