IF I HAD YOU
Etta Jones


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 a new
If I had you

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

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

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