On a Chinese Honeymoon (1902)
Lindy, put your arms around me,
Tell me that you’re glad you found me,
Say just once again “I love you.”
Lindy, if you’ll be my missus,
I will take you to the land of kisses
Down to China, to China far away, away.
Oh! Lindy, Lindy, we’ll go there, Lindy, some day.
On a Chinese honeymoon,
On a sunny day in June,
‘Neath the skies of blue we’ll wander
Where the Chinese lillies bloom,
And underneath the shady trees
We will sit all day and spoon
In the land of tea and roses
On a Chinese honeymoon.
