Heptune presents:

Funny, Dear, What Love Can Do

    (Bennett, Little, Straight)

Transcribed from vocals by Ruth Etting, recorded March 4, 1930,
From Ruth Etting, Living Era, Academy Sound and Vision, Ltd., CD AJA 5008.

You have me, I have you,
What a consolation;
Love is true, skies are blue,
Love's a revelation.

Funny how we find the sunshine,
Funny how the skies turn blue,
Funny, it all comes at one time;
Funny, dear, what love can do.

Everybody chases rainbows,
Looking for a bluebird blue,
Most of us in time find rainbows,
Funny, dear, what love can do.

Yesterday was a day
Cold as in November,
But today turned to May
With your sweet surrender.

Funny how my dream of heaven
Proved to me that dreams come true,
When you're in my arms, it's heaven,
Funny, dear, what love can do.

Funny how we find the sunshine,
Funny how the skies turn blue,
Funny, it all comes at one time;
Funny, dear, what love can do.

Everybody chases rainbows,
Looking for a bluebird blue,
Most of us in time find rainbows,
Funny, dear, what love can do.

Yesterday was a day
Cold as in November,
But today turned to May
With your sweet surrender.

Funny how my dream of heaven
Proved to me that dreams come true,
When you're in my arms, it's heaven,
Funny, dear, what love can do.
