Smokey Robinson – If I Were A Bell lyrics

Ding-dong, ding-dong,
Ding-dong, ding-dong,
Ding!

Ask me how do I feel,
Now that we're cozy and cling-ging.
Well sir, all I can say,
Is if I were a bell, I'd be...
(Ring, ) ((ring, )) ((ring, )) ((ring, ))
Ringing!
From the moment we kissed goodnight,
That's the way I jus' got ta behave.
And if I were a lamp I'd light,
And if I were a banner I'd wave.

Ask me how do I feel,
Li'l-ole me with my quiet upbring-ging.
Well sir, all I can say,
Is if I were a gate, I'd be...
(Swing, ) ((swing, )) ((swing, )) ((swing, ))
Swinging!
And if I were a clock,
I'd surely be popping my spri-ings.
And if I were a bell,
I'd go ding-dong, ding-dong, ding.
A-dong-ding.
A-dong-ding, a-dong-ding, a-dong-
-Ding.

(Bahh, ) ((bahhh, ))
Bahhh!
Oh yes, I knew my morale would crack,
From the wonderful way that you looked.

And if I were a duck I'd
/ (Quack)
Quack.
And if I were a goose,
I'd be cooked.

Ask me how do I feel,
Now that we're final-ly caressing.
Boy, if I were a salad, don'tcha know,
I'd be splashing my-iii dressing.
Or if I were a season, boy,
I'd surely be spring.
(And if I were a bell, )
(If I keep them...)
((I were a bell...))
If
I I were a bell...
And if I were a bell, if
I were a bell, I'd go
Ding-dong, ding-dong,
A-ding-dong. A-ding-dong.
A-ding-dong. A-ding-dong.
A-ding-dong. A-ding-dong.
Ding-a-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling...
Bong! Bong! Bong!

Denote solo by Smokey Robinson.
Denote solo by Claudette Rogers-
Robinson.
Denote everyone sings.
Denote just the male group members.
Denote all backup singer(s) without the
Lead.
