Originally written in 1911, this song has an interesting history.

The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi

When the world goes wrong as it’s bound to do,
and you’ve broken Dan Cupid’s bow,
and you long for the girl you used to love,
the maid of the long ago,
why, light your pipe, bid sorrow avaunt,
blow the smoke from your altar of dreams,
and wreathe the face of your dream girl there,
the love that is just what it seems.
Chorus
The girl of my dreams is the sweetest girl of all the girls I know.
Each sweet coed, like a rainbow trail, fades in the afterglow.
The blue of her eyes and the gold of her hair are a blend of the western sky,
and the moonlight beams on the girl of my dreams.
She’s the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
Every magic breeze wafts a kiss to you
from the lips of your sweet sixteen,
and one-by-one the maids you knew
all bow to your Meerschuam Queen.
As the years drift by on the tides of time,
and they all have forgotten but you,
then the girl of your dreams, the sweeter seems.
She’s the girl who is always true.
Chorus
The girl of my dreams is the sweetest girl of all the girls I know.
Each sweet coed, like a rainbow trail, fades in the afterglow.
The blue of her eyes and the gold of her hair are a blend of the western sky,
and the moonlight beams on the girl of my dreams.
She’s the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
