SHE WAS HAPPY TILL SHE MET YOU (Charles Graham / Monroe H. Rosenfeld) (1899) S.H. Dudley 'Twas a bright and sunny day When a young wife went away from her husband Who had wrung her heart with pain On the table lay a note with the simple words she wrote: "Good bye! I hope we'll never meet again" Unto her mother she returned The home for which she'd often yearned For every spark of love for him and fled There he sought her out at last with repentance for the past But her mother met him at the door and said: "I have come to say goodbye," said the husband with a sigh "Just let me take her to my heart again." But the mother said: "Too late: All her love has turned to hate So go your own way, your pleadings are in vain "She is my wife!" the husband cried "You shall not take her from my side The law forbids you part us we are wed!" "But you've broken every vow, she is yours no longer now My daughter shall not go!" the mother said She was happy till she met you And the fault is all your own If she wishes to forget you You will please let her alone She has come to her old mother Just because there is no other She'll be happy in her own sweet home (Corrections/additions by sailor - September 2006)
