THEN I'LL STOP LOVING YOU
(Words by Joe Goodwin, Joe McCarthy / Music by Al. Piantadosi, 1913)
You seem afraid of my love, dear, afraid of the things that I do,
true love has never run smooth, dear, that's why you think I'm
not true. It's foolish to tell you my lovetale, I can't think of
anything new, still I'll admit you are right, dear, maybe I'll stop loving you.
Sweethearts must have bits of sorrow, that helps to sweeten the
joy; sad today, glad on the morrow, life of a girl and boy. One
smile can chase any frown, dear, One kiss can gladden the
heart, though I may stop loving you; dear, that very day I will start.
When the golden sun stops shining, when the flowers cease to
grow, when a broken heart stops pining, when the waters cease
to flow; when a lad without a lassie, never feels a trifle blue,
when a child won't miss it's mother's kiss, then I'll stop loving you.
