SHEILA'S SONG By Lucillus Dedicated to my Dulcinea (Sung to the tune of "Goodbye Again") She walks into our campsite, and her face is all aglow, Her smile can make the night seem warm, as all who see her know, And men will come from all around if she remains too long, For charm and beauty are the heart of her sweet siren song. Oh, Sheila, stay awhile. We hope you can remain with us, We miss your smile. And I wish you could tell me, Why does the night seem darker when you go? From camp to camp she shows her grace for all of us to see, And each man has a secret hope her chosen he might be, But beauty such as hers is for all of us to share, All most of us poor men can do is breathe a hopeful prayer: Oh, Sheila, stay awhile. We hope you can remain with us, We miss your smile. And I wish you could tell me, Why does the night seem darker when you go? When you leave our camp and go your way The darkness gathers round, And everyone stops speaking so you hear the slightest sound. But if you should return to us, you'll bring the warmth again, And when you smile then none of us will care where you have been. Your eyes so bright, so warm and soft are always on my mind, We feel so lucky to have shared a little of your time. Oh, Sheila, stay awhile. We hope you can remain with us, We miss your smile. And I wish you could tell me, Why does the night seem darker when you go?
