Lyrics: First verse The flowers are all budding, Each bird builds his nest, Our love is in its springtime, Let's build with the rest, For you are my sweetheart, And why should we wait? When love is in its springtime, Each heart seeks its mate. Refrain Sweetheart, Sweetheart, you are my dearest one Fairer, Fairer than springtime's flowers can be. Sweetheart, Sweetheart, you are my nearest one, Sweetheart, you are the world to me! Sweetheart. Second verse The white snow flakes are falling, Birds sing sweet no more, But love, it still is calling, Fondly as of yore, For you're still my sweetheart, My love still is true, In winter or in summer, My sweetheart that's you. (Refrain)

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.
