Oh! You Beautiful Doll!

Lyrics Seymour Brown, music Nat D. Ayer, 1911

Honey dear, want you near,
Just turn out the light and then come over here;
Nestle close up to my side,
My heart's a fire, with love's desire.
In my arms, rest complete,
I never thought that life could ever be so sweet,
Till I met you, some time ago,
But now you know I love you so.

Oh! you beautiful doll, you great, big beautiful doll!
Let me put my arms about you, I could never live without you;
Oh! you beautiful doll, you great, big beautiful doll!
If you ever leave me how my heart will ache,
I want to hug you but I fear you'd break.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, Oh, you beautiful doll!

Precious prize, close your eyes,
Now we're goin' to visit lover's paradise;
Press your lips again to mine,
For love is king of ev'ry thing.
Squeeze me, dear, I don't care!
Hug me just as if you were a grizzly bear.
This is how I'll go through life,
No care or strife when you're my wife.

Oh! you beautiful doll, you great, big beautiful doll!
Let me put my arms about you, I could never live without you;
Oh! you beautiful doll, you great, big beautiful doll!
If you ever leave me how my heart will ache,
I want to hug you but I fear you'd break.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, Oh, you beautiful doll!
