Because of you
Language: English 
What have you done for me, dear one,
With eyes so true?
This grim old world looks golden bright
Because of you.
What have you done for me, dear heart,
With lips so true?
The words of others kindly seem
Because of you.
What have you done for me, dear heart,
With hands so true?
The clasp of others heartfelt feels
Because of you.
Queen of my heart and Queen of Queens
With love so true,
The years would drag with leaden feet
Wer't not for you.
