I may be wrong to say, I love you
I'll put your day in the dark
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart
And though I know you didn't want me
I played a fool at the start
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart
Though I may pretend I'm gay
And hide away in a magic house of my own
Hopin' that you may someday return and say
'I'm sorry I left you alone, dear'
I may be wrong to say, 'I miss you'
Or watch your view from afar
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart
'Yas, swing cat'
(piano & clapping)
'Uh-huh, yeah'
'Tickle that thing, boy'
'Oh, ain't that pretty?
Yowsir
(sax)
'I hear ya Mr. Sax Man'
'Uh-huh, oh yeah'
'Oh yeah'
(coronet)
'I hear ya Mr. Coronet Man'
Though I may pretend I'm gay
And hide away in a magic house of my own
Hopin' that you may someday return and say
'I'm sorry I left you alone, dear'
I may be wrong to say, 'I miss you'
Or watch your view from afar
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart.
