"Dearest" as written by and Ellas Mcdaniel....
Dearest, though you're the nearest to my heart
Please don't ever ummm yeah ever ever say we'll part
You scold, and you are so bold
Yes together ummm yeah our love will grow old
Ummm yeah our love will grow old

You may-ay-ay-ay be a million miles away
Please believe me ummm yeah when you hear me say
I love you, I love you

Come ho-o-o-ome, keep me from these sleepless nights
Try my love again ummm yeah
I'm gonna treat you right, ummm yeah, I'm gonna treat you right

    General CommentI first heard this song from the Juno soundtrack. It's a cute song. So short, but so sweet.

    General Commentthis is such a simple song, but i guess that's the charm to it. its sort of annoying how he mumbles "mmmyeah", it reminds me of Mr. Mackey off of South Park. but its funny how he says "I love you" in such a deep voice, lol.

    General CommentI LOVE Buddy Holly (hence my username Betty Holly) and one of the main reasons is these simple, beautiful love songs.

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song in such a melancholy way. It's about a love that was driven away, but it wasn't necessarily anything he did wrong, she was just fed up. He's pleading with her to come back because he misses her and is willing to change whatever it was she was unhappy with, even if he's not quite sure what it was.
