I'll Give You Something To Photograph

Mom and Pop Byrnes share a kiss (5k)Becky Roach – ’59

"I was trying to snap a photo of Mom and Pop Byrnes, and he said, ‘I'll give you something to photograph.’ With that, he reached over, grabbed her, and gave her a big kiss. The result was this photo.

"There's no doubt who either was singing about when they sang ‘Let Me Call You Sweetheart.’"

According to Wikipedia

"Let Me Call You Sweetheart" is a popular song, with music by Leo Friedman and lyrics by Beth Slater Whitson. The song was published in 1910 and first recorded by The Peerless Quartet.

The complete lyrics:

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.

The Byrnes Scholars sing ‘Let Me Call You Sweetheart’ at every luncheon to honor the Byrnes.
