Lyrics: First verse This world is full of lovely girls, You see them ev'ry where, With eyes that beam like diamonds, With dark or golden hair; But there's a picture in my heart, Of one dear girl I know, The sweetest girl of all to me, And Oh I love her so. Chorus Lulu, Lulu, she is the girl I adore, Lulu, Lulu, she has my heart ever more; For her I'd give my life, Soon she's to be my wife, True as can be, And loves only me, She's the sweetest girl of all. Second verse The birds of summer sing her praise, In ev'ry pretty song, There's not a charm thats lovely, But to her it does belong; Her sunny smile is mine alone, She makes this world to me, A perfect dream of happiness, When her dear face I see. (Chorus)
