Lyrics: First verse Don't be angry with me, darling, Smile your brightest sweetest smile! Keep the joyous twinkle beaming, In our bright eyes all the while! Let your laugh be one of pleasure, Drive each shadow from your brow. Be again the heart's sweet treasure, Don't be angry, darling, now. Chorus Don't be angry with me, darling, Drive away that look of pain! Let your laugh be one of pleasure, Smile your sweetest smile again. Second verse Don't be angry with me, darling, Keep the tear back from your eye; ‘Twas a friendly, timely warning, Given for the days gone by, No' for worlds would I distress you; Cast one cloud uupon your brow, Let not, then , my words depress you, Don't be angry, darling, now. (Chorus)
