The Platters – Wish It Were Me lyrics

Saw you dancing last night with someone,
Wish it were me, wish it were me
Dancing with you, wish it were true.

Saw you holding your arms around him,
Wish it were me, wish it were me
Clinging to you, wish it were true.

Don't say it's hopeless,
Won't you learn to tell
How I'd like to touch you with my prayer.

Yet I pray that my prayers will touch you,
Touch you for true, so you'll love me too,
And the whole world would see.
Wish it were me.

And the whole world would see.
I wish it were me.
