Sweet And Lovely

(Gus Arnheim / Harry Tobias / J.LeMere)


The Savoy Hotel Orpheans


Takes 1

Sweet and lovely, sweeter than the roses in May
Sweet and lovely, heaven must have sent her my way
Skies above me, never were as blue as her eyes
And she loves me, who would want a sweeter surprise

When she nestles in my arms so tenderly
There's a thrill that words cannot express
In my heart a song of love is taunting me, melody haunting me
Sweet and lovely, sweeter than the roses in May
And she loves me, there is nothing more I can say
