Sit -ting here be -fore the em -bers,
Watch -ing pic -tures fade and glow,
Seems as tho' the fire re -mem -bers,
Scenes of the long a -go;
You with gold -en ring -lets stream -ing;
Dressed in knick -ers there am I;
Just two kid -dies lost in dream -ing,
As we hum this lull -a -by.
Cud -dle up a lit -tle clos -er,
Lov -ey mine,
Cud -dle up and be my lit -tle,
Cling -ing vine.
Like to feel your cheek so ro -sy,
Like to make you com -fy, co -zy,
'Cause I love from head to toe -sy,
Lov -ey mine.
