about

I Want to Be Loved by Vincent Youmans and Irving Caesar - arranged by Elaine Dame and Jim Cox

lyrics

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Untill I make you happy too

Life's really worth living
When we are mirth giving
I'd like to give some mirth to you

When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Untill I make you happy too

I'm a very ordinary Dame
Trying to work out life's happy game
Doing unto others as I'd like to have them doing unto me

When I find a very lonely soul
To be kind becomes my only goal
I feel so much better when I tell them my philosophy

When skies are gray and you say you are blue
I'll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won't be happy
Until I make you happy too
