Sam And Sue


Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 4th of January, 2016,
to Manuel Klein's 1909 music for the chorus of his song,
'Meet Me Where The Lanterns Glow'.

Sam Sparrow sings ...

"Meet me up on Cupid's wing, .....
And there I soon will sing .... this song politely; ....
I'll too go fluttering past you so merrily, ....
And tweet, 'Believe you me, ... sweet Sue you're lovely'. ...
I do know Saint Valentine, he says, 'Bird-love is mighty fine ... in any weather.' ...
Please come to me, and you will be mine, yes mine, all mine for hours at a time
In Spring-weeks of fun together."

Sue Sparrow replies .....

"Yes young Sam I'll come to you, ....
And soon we'll bill and coo .... in barn or hedge---row; ....
Then we'll build with utmost zest a tightly stitched-up nest ...
That's sure to stand the test ... when gusts of wind .... blow; .....
I too know Saint Valentine he says, 'Bird-love is mighty fine .... in any weather.' ....
Come let us rub because that is the nub of how I'll make good eggs for you my 'hub'
In Spring-weeks when close together."
