Oh What I Know About You  (1909) 
by Irving Berlin
Verse 1

Now sweet Flo and Joe,
With lights burning low,
Sat spooning as all lovers do;
Her wee sister Rose
Stood on her tiptoes
And eagerly kept peeping through.
Oh my, oh what bliss,
She soon heard them kiss,
As he gently called her "My Dear."
The very next day
When Flo came her way
She whispered these words in her ear:

Chorus

"Oh! What I know about you,
Oh! What I know about you.
Don't say you didn't,
'Cause I overheard.
Honest go goodness I won't say a word.
Oh! What I know about you,
Something that I wouldn't do,
Fr be it from me
To repeat what I see,
But oh! What I know about you."

Verse 2

Next evening when Joe
Called 'round to see Flo,
He found little Rose all alone.
In her cunning way
He soon heard her say,
"My sister said she's not at home."
Her face wore a grin.
She said, "Please come in,"
Poor Joseph, oh my what he saw.
There sat pretty Flo
With her other beau--
Rose cried to her sister once more;

Chorus

"Oh! What I know about you,
Oh! What I know about you.
Don't say you didn't,
'Cause I overheard.
Honest go goodness I won't say a word.
Oh! What I know about you,
Something that I wouldn't do,
Fr be it from me
To repeat what I see,
But oh! What I know about you."
