Lyrics verse 1:
I'M SO BLUE,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT TO DO.
ALL DAY THROUGH,
I'M PINING
JUST FOR YOU.
I DID WRONG
WHEN I LET YOU
GET 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.

Chorus:
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,
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 WITH YOU.

verse 2:
ALL DRESSED UP
BUT STILL
NOWHERE TO GO,
HOW I WISH
I COULD SEE A SHOW.
BUT 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,
OH,
WON'T YOU LISTEN,
LITTLE SWEETIE,
WHILE I SAY:

Chorus:
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,
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 WITH YOU,
FOR JUST AN HOUR,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU.
