If I Had You

If I Had You

(Ted Shapiro /J.Campbell & Reg Connelly) 1928

Fred Elizalde & his Music

I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad, all of the while
I could change the gray skies to blue
If I had you

I could leave the old days behind
Leave all my pals, I'd never mind
I could start my life anew
If I had you

I could climb a snow-capped mountain
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burning desert
If I had you by my side

I could be a king, dear, uncrowned
Humble or poor, rich or renowned
There is nothing I couldn't do
If I had you
