Molly Do You Love Me (Stephen C. Foster) Molly do you love me? Can the morning beam Love a lowly flowret Living in its gleam? Let one gentle whisper All my doubts destroy Let my dreamy rapture Turn to awaking joy. Cho: Molly! do you love me? Tell me, tell me true! Molly! do you love me, Love as I love you? Tell me, by those ringlets, By those eyes of blue. Molly! do you love me, Love as I love you? Can that voice's music Flow from heatless glee? Must I read no feeling In that melody? Ah! my heart has yielded To those smiles that play With the merry dimples All the live-long day. Though the tender blossoms Need the summer light, Let our hearts, united, Brave affliction's blight.
