Carousel Musical – If I Loved You (Introduction) lyrics

Billy
Ain't you scared of me? I mean, after what that cop said about me
Takin' money from girls?

Julie
I ain't scared!

Billy
Is that your name Julie, Julie, hmm hmm, somethin'?

Julie
Julie Jordon-

Billy
You're a queer one, Julie Jordan,
Ain't you sorry that you didn't run away?
You can still go if you wanna,

Julie
I reckon that I care to choose to stay!
You couldn't take my money if I didn't have any
And I don't have a penny, that's true.
And if I did have money,
You couldn't take any
'Cause you'd ask an' I'd give it to you!

Billy
You're a queer one, Julie Jordan,
Have you ever had a fella you give money to?

Julie
No!

Billy
Ain't you ever had a fella at all?

Julie
No!

Billy
Well, you must have a fella you went walkin' with

Julie
Yes!

Billy
Where'd you walk?

Julie
Nowhere special I recall-

Billy
In the woods?

Julie
No!

Billy
On a beach?

Julie
No!

Billy
Did you love him-

Julie
No, I've never told you anyone, I told you that.

Billy
Aha! You're-Your're a funny kid!
Hey, you wanna go to town dance maybe or...

Julie
No! I have to be careful!

Billy
Of what!

Julie
Of my character... You see, I'm never gonna marry.

I'm never gonna marry if I was gonna marry,
I wouldn't have to be such a stickler.
But I'm never gonna marry,
And a girl who don't marry
Has got to be much more partic'lar

[They Laugh]

Billy
Ah ah ah-
Hey s'ppose- s'ppose I was to say that I would marry you, hmm?

Julie
You!?!

Billy
Oh, that scared you, hmm?
Then you are thinkin' 'bout what the cop said!

Julie
No, I ain't, I never paid no mind of what he said!

Billy
But you wouldn't marry a smear like me, would you?

Julie
Yes, I would!
If I loved you... It wouldn't make no difference what you'd-
Even if I died for it.

Billy
Well, how you know what you'd do if you loved me?
How you'd feel or anythin'?

Julie
I don't know how I know. Just the same I know how it'd be...
If I loved you.
When I work in the mill weaving at the loom
I gaze absent-minded at the roof
And half the time the shuttle get tangled in the threads
And the warp get mixed with the woof
If I loved you...

Billy
But you don't!

Julie
No, I don't!
