VP_007805 Verse 1Miss Caroline to call you mine I'd give most all I've got, To kiss those lips like honey drips, I'd die right on the spot; To hold your hand would seem so grand I'd almost faint with joy: What makes you be so cold to me Warm up and call me honey boy. Chorus 1Won't you please just call me honey, For a little while, for a little while, It would make me feel so funny, For a little while, for a little while; If you don't believe I love you true, I'll tell you babe what you must do, Let me take you in my arms, For a little while, For a little while. little while, For a little while. Verse 2I dream of you at night I do, I think of you all day, I love you dear that's why I'm here, I just can't keep away; There ain't no part of this boy's heart that don't belong to you, Miss Caroline, say you'll be mine, Oh, tell me that you love me too.
