If You Were My Girl

Though astronomers say,
it's an awful long way,
from here to the moon,
I would go there on my honeymoon,
if you were my girl . . .

Far away from the crowd,
we could live on a cloud,
a castle in air,
It would be a storybook affair,
if you were my girl . . .

If you'd like some ice cream,
from the milky way,
I would shinny up the moonbeam,
an' bring you a rainbow parfait . . .

Just a sailin' along,
on the wings of a song,
with you by my side,
life would be a rolly coaster ride,
if you were my girl . . .

< instrumental verse with scat >

I would go there on my honeymoon,
if you were my girl . . .

< instrumental verse with scat >

It would be a storybook affair,
if you were my girl . . .

If you'd like some ice cream,
from the milky way,
I would shinny up the moonbeam,
an' bring you a rainbow parfait . . .

Just a sailin' along,
on the wings of a song,
with you by my side,
life would be a rolly coaster ride,
if you were my girl . . .

if you were my girl . . .
if you were my girl . . .
