I may be wrong to say, I love you
I'll put your day in the dark
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart

And though I know you didn't want me
I played a fool at the start
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart

Though I may pretend I'm gay
And hide away in a magic house of my own
Hopin' that you may someday return and say
'I'm sorry I left you alone, dear'

I may be wrong to say, 'i miss you'
Or watch your view from afar
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart

'Yas, swing cat'

(piano & clapping)

'Uh-huh, yeah'

'Tickle that thing, boy'

'Oh, ain't that pretty?
Yowsir

(sax)

'i hear ya Mr. Sax Man'

'Uh-huh, oh yeah'

'Oh yeah'

(coronet)

'i hear ya Mr. Coronet Man'

Though I may pretend I'm gay
And hide away in a magic house of my own
Hopin' that you may someday return and say
'I'm sorry I left you alone, dear'

I may be wrong to say, 'i miss you'
Or watch your view from afar
But it's better to say, I love you
Than to live with a lie in my heart.
