On Beautiful Lake Taneycomo
ROCKAWAY BEACH. MO.
My silver-haired Daddy, husband divine,
Dad of my Sonny Boy, too-
That's who this cottage is named for.
He built it, dear renter, for you.
The birds sing so sweet in the Ozarks,
They are singing for you and for me,
As you sit on the beach in the twilight
In the shade of an old willow tree.
On our island' the sweethearts will linger
As the big moon comes over the hill
Two hearts entwine; they'll be true for
As they list to the old whip-poor-will.
And when your vacation is ended-
If it is for a week or a day,
I hope you'll remember “Daddy-0²-Mine”
And come back to old Rockaway.
