From the recording Hugs and Kisses (x's and o's) - MP3
Words by George A. Norton. Music by Ernie Burnett. Published in 1912. Arranged and recorded by Curtis Chamberlain/Big Band Curtis in 2013.
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 belong to you (I am strong for you). Ev'ry 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.
