AFTER THE BALL Featured in the Musical Show "A TRIP TO CHINATOWN" (1892) (Charles K Harris) J. Aldrich Libbey - 1892 George J. Gaskin - 1893 John Yorke Atlee - 1893 A little maiden climbed an old man's knee, Begged for a story, "Do, Uncle, please." Why are you single; Why live alone? Have you no babies, have you no home?" "I had a sweetheart, years, years ago: Where she is now, pet, you soon will know. List to the story, I'll tell it all. I believed her faithless, after the Ball." After the ball is over After the break of dawn After the dancer's leaving After the stars are gone Many a heart is aching If you could read them all Many the hopes that have vanished After the ball. Bright lights were flashing in the grand ballroom Softly the music, playing sweet tunes There came my sweetheart, my love, my own I wished some water, left her alone When I returned, dear, there stood a man Kissing my sweetheart, as lovers can Down fell the glass, pet, broken that's all Just as my heart was, after the ball After the ball is over After the break of dawn After the dancer's leaving After the stars are gone Many a heart is aching If you could read them all Many the hopes that have vanished After the ball. Long years have passed, child, I've never wed True to my lost love, though she is dead She tried to tell me, tried to explain I would not listen, pleadings were in vain One day a letter came from that man He was her brother, the letter ran That's why I'm lonely, not home at all I broke her heart, After the ball After the ball is over After the break of dawn After the dancer's leaving After the stars are gone Many a heart is aching If you could read them all Many the hopes that have vanished After the ball. After the ball is over After the break of dawn After the dancer's leaving After the stars are gone Many a heart is aching If you could read them all Many the hopes that have vanished After the ball.
