Initials On The Fireplace...
NOBODY'S DARLIN' BUT MINE
BE NOBODY'S DARLIN' BUT MINE, LOVE,
BE HONEST, BE FAITHFUL, BE KIND.
AND PROMISE ME THAT YOU WILL NEVER,
BE NOBODY'S DARLIN' BUT MINE.
COME SIT BY MY SIDE, LITTLE DARLIN',
COME LAY YOUR COOL HAND ON MY BROW.
AND PROMISE ME THAT YOU WILL NEVER,
BE NOBODY'S DARLIN' BUT MINE.
  YOU'RE AS SWEET AS THE FLOWERS OF SPRINGTIME,
YOU'RE AS PURE AS THE DEW FROM A ROSE.
I HAD RATHER BE SOMEBODY'S DARLIN',
THAN A POOR BOY THAT NOBODY KNOWS.
