I'll Be All Smiles To-night

A.W. AUNER’S CARD AND JOB PRINTING ROOMS, Tenth and Race Sts., Philadelphia. Pa.

I’ll be All Smiles To-Night.

I’ll deck my brow with roses.
The loved one may be there,
The gems that others gave me,
Will shine within my hair.
And even them that know me,
Will think my heart is light
Though my heart will break to-morrow,
I’ll be all smiles to-night.

And when the room he entered,
The bride upon his arm;
I stood and gazed upon him,
As if he were a charm
So once he smiled upon her,
So once he smiled on me,
They know not what I’ve suffered,
They found no change in me.

And when the dance commences,
Oh! how I will rejoice.
I’ll sing the song he taught me,
Without one faltering voice.
When flatterers come around me,
They will think my heart is light,
Though my heart will break to-morrow,
I’ll be all smiles to-night.

And when the dance is over,
And all have gone to rest,
I’ll think of him dear mother,
The one that I love best.
He once did love, believe me.
But now has grown cold and strange,
He sought not to deceive me,
False friends have brought this change.
