If It's True

    (Redman, Bentley, Penrose)

Transcribed from Don Redman and His Orchestra, vocals by Harlan Lattimore; recorded June 28, 1932.
From Don Redman and His Orchestra, 1931-1933; The Chronogical Classics 543.

If it's true,
That there's some someone else as perfect, dear, as you,
Then some other boy's in my condition, too,
Dreaming all day through,
Dreams of you.

And if it's true,
That there's someone else with lips and eyes of blue.
Then he longs for her the way I long for you,
Hoping all the day through.

For although each night,
He may find
That she's in love with another.

And if it's true,
And she tells him that the whole affair is through,
I'm just wondering if you'll treat me that way, too.
I'll be blue if it's true.

And if it's true,
And she tells him that the whole affair is through,
I'm just wondering if you'll treat me that way, too.
I'll be blue if it's true.
