Let Me Call You Sweetheart

“Let Me Call You Sweetheart” was published in 1910 with music by Leo Friedman and lyrics by Beth Slater Whitson.

The first recorded version of the song was recorded by the Peerless Quartet.

The original and complete lyrics follow:

I am dreaming Dear of you, day by day

Dreaming when the skies are blue, When they're gray;

When the silv'ry moonlight gleams, Still I wander on in dreams,

In a land of love, it seems, Just with you.

Let me call you "Sweetheart," I'm in love with you.

Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.

Keep the love-light glowing in your eyes so true.

Let me call you "Sweetheart," I'm in love with you.

Longing for you all the while, More and more;

Longing for the sunny smile, I adore;

Birds are singing far and near, Roses blooming ev'rywhere

You, alone, my heart can cheer; You, just you.

Let me call you "Sweetheart," I'm in love with you.

Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.

Keep the love-light glowing in your eyes so true.

Let me call you "Sweetheart," I'm in love with you.

However, the following is a very popular version by Pattie Page that demonstrates two styles of sing ing the song; one traditional and one with a jazz feel:
