LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART
“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 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 is 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.
Let me call you Sweetheart
I’m in love with you
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too
Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you Sweetheart
I’m in love 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 lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you Sweetheart
I’m in love with you
