Lyrics GOT A DATE WITH AN ANGEL,
GOT TO MEET HER AT SEVEN,
GOT A DATE WITH AN ANGEL,
AND I'M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN.
SHE'S SO LOVELY BESIDE ME,
AND WHATEVER BETIDE ME,
GOT AN ANGEL TO GUIDE ME,
SO I'M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN.

SOON I'LL HEAR BELLS RING OUT,
AND THE CHOIR WILL SING OUT,
WHEN THE PEARLY GATES
SWING OUT,
SHE'LL BECKON TO ME.

I'VE BEEN WAITING A LIFE TIME,
FOR THIS EVENING AT SEVEN,
GOT A DATE WITH AN ANGEL,
AND I'M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN.

Lyrics I'M RECALLIN'
TIMES WHEN I WAS SMALL,
IN LIGHT AND FREE JUBILEE DAYS.
OLD FOLKS PRAYIN',
EV'RYBODY SWAYIN',
LOUDLY I CHANTED MY PRAISE.
HOW I SANG ABOUT THE JUDGEMENT MORN,
AND OF GABRIEL TOOTIN' ON HIS HORN.
IN THAT SUNNY
LAND OF MILK AND HONEY,
I HAD NO COMPLAINTS,
WHILE I THOUGHT OF SAINTS,
SO I SAY TO ALL WHO FEEL FORLORN:

SING HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!
AND YOU'LL SHOO THE BLUES AWAY
WHEN CARES PURSUE YA,
HALLELUJAH!
GETS YOU THROUGH THE DARKEST DAY.
SATAN LIES AWAITIN'
AND CREATIN' SKIES OF GRAY,
BUT HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!
HELPS TO SHOO THE BLUES AWAY.

Alt. Title If You Were The Only Boy In The World

Writers Nat D. Ayer, Clifford Grey

Genres Standard, Ballad

Recorded 1965

Lyrics male version:

SOMETIMES WHEN I FEEL BAD
AND THINGS LOOK BLUE,
I WISH I HAD A PAL,
SAY, ONE LIKE YOU!
SOMEONE WITHIN MY HEART
TO BUILD A THRONE,
SOMEONE WHO'D NEVER PART,
TO CALL MY OWN.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD,
AND I WERE THE ONLY BOY,
NOTHING ELSE WOULD MATTER
IN THE WORLD TODAY,
WE COULD GO ON LIVING
IN THE SAME OLD WAY.
A GARDEN OF EDEN
JUST MADE FOR TWO,
WITH NOTHING
TO MAR OUR JOY.
I WOULD SAY
SUCH WONDERFUL THINGS TO YOU,
THERE WOULD BE
SUCH WONDERFUL THINGS TO DO.
IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD,
AND I WERE THE ONLY BOY.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
(He:) EV'RY DAY
IT SEEMS LIKE A YEAR,
SWEETHEART,
WHEN YOU ARE NOT NEAR.
(She:) ALL THAT YOU CLAIM
MUST BE TRUE

FOR I'M JUST THE SAME AS YOU.

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.

[verse 2]:
(He:) STARS ARE SMILING AT ME
FROM YOUR EYES,
(She:) SUNBEAMS NOW
THERE WILL BE IN THE SKIES.
(He:) TELL ME
THAT YOU WILL BE TRUE!
(She:) THAT WILL ALL
DEPEND ON YOU,
DEAR!

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.
