Come, sweetheart mine, don't sit and pine Tell me of the cares that make you feel so blue What have I done, answer me, hon Have I ever said an unkind word to you My love is true, and just for you I'd do almost anything at any time Dear, when you sigh, or when you cry Something seems to grip this very heart of mine Come to me my melancholy baby Cuddle up and don't be blue All your fears are foolish fancy, maybe You know, dear, that I'm in love with you Every cloud must have a silver lining Wait until the sun shines through Smile, my honey dear, while I kiss away each tear Or else I shall be melancholy too (Orchestral Interlude) Every cloud must have a silver lining Say, wait until the sun shines through Smile, my honey dear, while I kiss away each tear Or else I shall be melancholy too (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2013)
