WHEN HIS EYES LOOKED INTO MINE

WHEN HIS EYES LOOKED INTO MINE
Silvio Hein

From “The Paradise of Mahomet.” One of the few songs written from the woman’s point of view.

My number one, he was a splendid chap.
A type quite Oriental.
He’d a heart so warm,
He’d take a girl by storm,
He was so temp’ramental,
Like a lion he was very strong and brave,
His face was somewhat grim.
How that man loved me! It’s true I see
I shall find no one to equal him.
To equal him I really yearn
Believe me I shall gladly learn
Oh, no, no, no It can’t be done,
He was the only one.
Perhaps if you a few suggestions make,
I’ll help you to forget,
Do not awake my red[c]collections,
They only fill me with regret.

CHORUS:
Oh! when his eyes looked into mine
All his true love I could divine,
And all my nature would respond,
To love like his, so deep, so fond.
And when he left me all alone,
Good bye he said my bride, my own
Moment of bliss!
Just one long kiss!
That’s all the love my life has known.
