"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."

Trivia and other nonsense

The girl who modeled for the original sheet music is alleged to have been Virginia Rappe, the subject of the 1921 Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle scandal.

Among the thousands of mainstream appearances of this pop standard are a British advert for mobile phone operator and internet service provider Orange SA, involving a wind-up toy of two figures hugging. The version used in this advert was sung by Oliver Hardy from the 1938 film "Swiss Miss", made with his comic partner Stan Laurel.
