THERE'S A GIRL IN HAVANA
(E. Ray Goetz / A. Baldwin Sloane, 1911)
I'm in love with you, but I'll admit, I've told the same tale o'er
To a lot of girls, but I'll admit, 'twas never meant before.
Like every boy, I've loved a few, 'tis true, But never with a
love I feel for you; So I think for future happiness,
My past I should confess.
If a fellow says he loves you, and he's never said the same To
another girl, if you believe him, you're the one to blame.
When love is true each thought you would confide, When
love is true there's naught that you could hide; So to prove
my love is not a-miss, Is why I tell you this.
There's a girl in Havana, There's a girl in Savannah, I've
wooed a few sweet girlies who I promised to be true to, But
then I never knew, dear, That I'd ever meet you, dear, So let's
forget the girls I met Before I met you.
