WHEN THE ANGELUS IS RINGING
(Joe Young / Bert Grant, 1914)
Love time, love time can't you understand when it is love time
Birds sing bells ring, love just seems to ring with every chime,
Ding dong dong ding, loves messages they bring
Two hearts true hearts all the world is full of loving sweet hearts
I'll bring the ring, to the pealing of each silvry chime,
Ding dong dong ding, all nature seems in rhyme.
When the angelus is ringing in the belfry on the hill
And the whirpoolwill is singing in the night, when all is still,
I am waiting for the time when I can come to you and sing loves sweet song.
While the silvry bells peal out their dong ding dong,
Down the road of love we'll wander 'mid the violets perfume to the little cottage yonder
when we'll spend our honeymoon;
And as we go through life from year to year,
Cares and worries disappear, when the angelus is ringing, dear.
