If It Ain't Love

    (Andy Razaf, Fats Waller, Don Redman)

From Chick Webb and His Orchestra, 1929-1934, Chronological Classics 502.

If it ain't love,
Why am I here,
Longing for you?
If it ain't love,
Why am I here,
Yearning for you?
What can it be
That's making me
Dream of you night and day?
Making me blue
All the day through
Whenever you are away.

If it ain't love,
Then it must be
Some magic art;
If it ain't love,
How did this song
Creep into my heart;
Oh, why do I sigh
To that moon high above?
Please answer me,
What can it be,
If it ain't love?
