I'm so blue, I don't know what to do,
All night long, I seem to say to you,
I did wrong when I let you go away,
Now I dream about you night and day,
I'll be happy if I had you by my side,
I'd be happy if I knew you were my bride.

If I could be with you one hour tonight,
And free to do the things I might,
I want you to know
That you couldn't go,
Until I showed you that I loved you so.

If I could be with you I'd love you strong,
If I could be with you I'd love you all night long,
I'm telling you true,
You'd be anything but blue,
If I could be with you for just one hour,
If I could be with you!

If I could be with you one hour tonight,
And free to do the things I might,
I want you to know
That you couldn't go...
[Scats]

If I could be with you I'd love you strong,
If I could be with you I'd love you all night long,
I'm telling you true,
You'd be anything but blue,
If I could be with you just for one hour,
If I could be with you!
