[Verse 1]
I’m so blue I don’t know what to do
All day though I’m pinning just for you
I did wrong when I let you go away
For now I grieve about you night and day
I’m unhappy and dissatisfied
But i’d be happy if I had you by my side

[Verse 2]
All dressed up but still no where to go
How I wish that I could see a show
Here I wait with no one to call me Dear
The one I love is many miles from here
Central give me One Two Three Four J
Oh won’t you listen little sweetie while I say

If I could be with you I’d love you strong
If I could be with you I’d love you long
I want you to know I wouldn’t go
Until I told you honey why I love you so
If I could be with you one hour tonight
If I was free to do the things
I might I’m telling you true I’d be anything but blue
If I could be you
