  • Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    Charlotte, don't you cry
    Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    He'll love you till he dies

    Oh, hold him darling
    Please hold him tight
    And brush the tear from your eye
    You weep because you had a dream last night
    You dreamed that he said goodbye
    He held two roses within his hand
    Two roses he gave to you
    The red rose tells you of his passion
    The white rose his love so true

    Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    Charlotte, don't you cry
    Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    He'll love you till he dies

    And every night after he shall die
    Yes, every night when he's gone
    The wind will sing you this lullaby
    Sweet Charlotte was loved by John

    Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    Charlotte, don't you cry
    Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
    He'll love you till he dies Writer/s: Frank De Vol, Mack David
