Oscar Hammerstein – If I Loved You lyrics

Julie*But*
somehow I can see Just
exactly how I'd be- If

I loved you Time
and again I would try to say All
I'd want you to know If
I loved you Words
wouldn't come in an easy way Round
in circles I'd go Longin'
to tell you But
afraid and shy I'd
let my golden chances pass me by Soon
you'd leave me Off
you would go in the mist of day Never
never, to know how I loved you If
I loved you Billy

*Well*
anyway, you, mean you don't love me That's.
what you said isn't, it Julie?

*Yes*
I!
can smell 'em can, you ah, The
blossoms The. wind brings them down Billy

*There*
ain't much wind tonight Hardly... any You.
can't hear a sound not, the turn of a leaf Nor
the fall of a wave hittin' the sand The
tide's creepin up on the beach like a thief Afraid
to be caught stealin the land On
a night like this I start to wonder What
life is all about Julie

*And*
I always say two heads are better than one to Figure
it out Billy

*I*
don't need you and, don't need anybody helpin' me Well
I, got it figured out for myself We're
not important What. are we A?
couple of specks o' nuthin' Look
up there There's...
a hell of a lotta stars in the sky And
the sky's so big the sea looks small And
two little people you, and I We
don't count at all You're
a funny kid you, know I?
don't remember meetin' a girl like you Hey.
you're, trying to get me to marry you Julie?

*No*
Billy!

*Then*
what's puttin into my head baby You're?
different all right I, know what it is You...
have doped me with that little kid's face right, You've?
adjusted me I'd
wonder what it'd be like Julie...

*What*
Billy?

*Nothin*
No
I, know what it'd be like It'd
be awful I! can just see myself- Kinda

scrawny and pale Pickin
at my food And
love sick like any other guy I'd
throw away my sweater and dress up like a dude In
a dicky and a collar and a tie If
I loved you Julie

*But*
you don't Billy

*No*
I, don't But!
somehow I can see Just
exactly how I'd be If
I loved you Time
and time again I would try to say All
I'd want you to know If
I loved you Words
wouldn't come in an easy way Round
in circles I'd go Longin
to tell you But
afraid and shy I'd
let my golden chances pass me by Soon
you'd leave me Off
you'd go in the mist of day Never
never, to know How
I loved you If
I loved you Aha

I'm... not the kind of fella to marry anybody No!
even, if a girl was foolish enough to want me to I
wouldn't Julie!

*Don't*
worry about it Billy, Billy

*Who's*
worried Julie?

*You're*
right about there bein' no wind The
blossoms are comin down by themselves Just
they're in time to I reckon

    "If I Loved You" is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.

    In the show, the characters of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan sing this song as they hesitantly declare their love for one another, yet are too shy to express their true feelings.
