Amelia, Amelia, I love you, I do
I just need to know if you love me too
Amelia, Amelia, my wife soon to be
I’ll always want to just be there for you.
I swear that I’ll love you 'till death do us part
I’ll never, ever leave you; I give you my heart
You’ll never have to worry, I love you, I do
They’ll never be a time that I’m not there for you
The wind in the trees whispers softly to me,
"Amelia, Amelia you’re longing to see,"
The whippoorwill sings as she walks down the lane
The evening’s aglow as she calls out my name.
Amelia, Amelia, my beautiful wife
Together, how happy; our wonderful life
Waltzing; Amelia’s the waltz of my life
My prayers have been answered, my beautiful wife
