Come to me, my melancholy baby

Cuddle up and don't be blue

All your fears are foolish fancies, maybe

You know, honey, I'm in love with you

 

Every cloud must have a silver lining

Just wait until the sun shines through

Smile, my honey dear, while I kiss away each tear

Or else I shall be melancholy too

 

<instrumental-first two lines of second verse>

 

Smile, my honey dear, while I kiss away each tear

Or else I shall be melancholy too
