I can't keep from saying so you of all the girls I know
Are the most wonderful though you're not mine
I can't keep from crying out in my heart there is no doubt
There's happiness that I'm without cause you're not mine

If you were mine if you were mine I would gladly climb
The highest mountain in the world the bravest men could find
Then I'd gladly turn right back to get to you retrace each track
Go right back o'er that mountain stack if you were mine

Every day you turn from me brand new teardrops cut my cheeks
Until they carve these lines so deep cause you're not mine
Then every night I sleep in trust that when the Sandman dips his brush
Into this pale of stary dust that you'll be mine
If you were mine if you were mine...
