VP_008699 Verse 1There's a pretty pair of eyes that haunt me in my dreams And to me it seems, Love speaks thro' their beams Just to whisper, that the one I dream of loves me true And to promise that they'll e'er be true; For ev'ry time I look in them they world grows bright, Even in the night, Stars give forth more light; Girlie think a moment and you'll guess just who, Stole my heart with ten der Eyes of Blue. Chorus 1Eyes of Blue, I love them because they belong to you! Heaven's hue, They can't help but be true; If you knew How their beams have pierced my poor heart though, Your hand would be in mine And lovelight would shine In Eyes of Blue. Verse 2There are eyes of brown that glitter like the brightest gold And tho' oft they're told, That dear story old, Other folks may rave o'er them and think them just divine, Toast their brightest light in sparkling wine. I've fram'd within my heart two tender eyes, such eyes, Color of the skies, In whose depth there lies Something that I've grown to feel is just a sign, That the eyes of blue are mine all mine.
