Alpha Gam candlelight song

Hi - I was just trying to remember the lyrics to a song we used back in the late 60's for serenades. I Googled it and found an Alpha Gam (nittanyalum) was looking for it on this site. I haven't found the origin, but I have remembered most of the lyrics:

"For me, there's a man who is tall, dark, and handsome,
the finest of any I know.
He calls me each night, just to tell me he loves me,
And say that he misses me so.
And when we're apart, how I miss his caresses,
I hope that he guesses _____.
So I'll go on believing this love I'm receiving
Will last till the end of time."

I guess it's universal, at least in AGD, because I was in the Indiana U chapter (Beta Delta). Hi, all you Gams! Anyone remember that one phrase?

We had different words:

For me there's a guy
Who is handsome and strongest
Of all of the fellows I know
His smile is so warm and his eyes are a-shining
With love that's for me dear, I know.
And when every night
When shadows are falling
I hear his voice saying tis true
Though the years may us sever
I love him forever
My sweetheart of Alpha Gam.

We did not sing that song in my chapter. I do remember-
Don't you call me sweetheart, I am crushed I am.
Since I caught you necking with another Alpha Gam.
I wanted you to meet the girls that mean so much to me.
But did you have to go and date the whole sorority???

Perhaps that spoke volumes about the men on my campus!

Our song. 45 years later I think it's awful.

My Alpha Gamma Delta man, I will sing all my songs to you.
To tell you, sweetheart, if I can, that your Alpha Gam girl is true.
You're the only one in all my schemes
And soon I will see you again in my dreams
And now, my Alpha Gamma man, I will bid you a sweet...good...night.
