Lyrics: The day is grey, And all the way is drear and lonely Though together, side by side, Through life we go. Without the light of love To shine upon our path We cannot know a friend from foe, Where all is dark, And yet, amid the throngs that pass and mingle, Are hearts that ache for sympathy and love. A look perchance, A word of tender meaning, Lo! two happy hearts are one! Perfect song of loving hearts united, Golden dream of heaven melting into day! Perfect song of hearts forever plighted! Joy with summer blends And winter ends In perfect love's June day!

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
