Lyrics: I know an Island, my dear, An Island to where lovers steer, There is no chart, Only your heart To guide you to its shore so near. No heart untouched can set sail, Hearts without love always fail; Close by my side, with just me as your guide, We will sail to this Isle of Love. Ah! Ah! Follow me, dear, follow me, dear; Ah! Ah! Oh! I'll love you, How I'll love you, Never to be lonely, If you love me only. Wonderful Isle D' Amour, One little Isle to be sure, Still love can't die, ‘Neath its blue sky. This little Isle for you and I. Come, love, we'll drift for awhile, You in my arms to this Isle, My little Isle D'Amour, My little Isle D' Amour, No one shall know, dear, that I love you so on our Isle; Ah! Ah! Ah! Amour.

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.
