Billie Holiday – If I Were You lyrics

Buddy Bernier / Robert D. Emmerich

If I were you
Here's what I'd do
I'd give my heart a break
Instead of trying to break my heart

It I were you
I'd do this too
I'd string along with me
Instead of keepin' me on a string

I'd love me the whole day long
You'd never catch me nappin'
Wouldn't have a change of heart
Not for fear
That such a thing should happen

It I were you
Here's what I'd do
I'd stick to me
My whole life through
It I were you
