The Second Verse

Ev'ry magic breeze wafts a kiss to you
From the lips of your "sweet sixteen."
And one by one the maids you knew
Bow to your Meerschaum Queen.
As the years drift by on the tides of time,
And they all have forgotten but you,
Then the girl of your dreams the sweeter seems,
She's the girl who is always true.

*Meerschaum is a resilient white mineral used in the making pipe bowls.

So many people have asked for the whole song. So here's the first verse!

When the world goes wrong, as it's bound to do
And you've broken Dan Cupid's bow.
And you long for the girl you used to love
The maid of the long ago.
Why, light you pipe, bid sorrow avant
Blow the smoke from your altar of dreams
And wreathe the face of your dream girl there
The love that is just what it seems.

The girl of my dreams is the sweetest girl
Of all the girls I know.
Each sweet coed, like a rainbow trail
Fades in the afterglow.
The blue of her eyes and the gold of her hair
Are a blend of the western skies;
And the moonlight beams on the girl of my dreams
She's the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
