I'D RATHER BE WITH YOU (Frank Comstock / Roy Alfred) Les Brown & His Orch. (vocal: Doris Day & A.N. Other**) - 1945 Karen Oberlin & Tedd Firth - 2002 MALE SINGER: If I could sit at a table with Grable Ride in a car with Lamarr If I could dance with a sweet chick like Garbo or Dietrich I'd rather be with you If I could just cuddle nearer to Shearer Go on a tour with Lamour If I could show off the muscle to Rosalind Russell I'd rather be with you It won't be Adrian who put's you in clothes You don't do Maxie Factor to powder your nose And Grauman's theatre doesn't have the prints of your toes And without the help of Zanuck you're a panic If I could go to a parson with Garson Do just as well with Blondell If I could share a veranda with Carmen Miranda I'd rather be with you DORIS: If I could wear something lacy for Tracy Let Ray Milland hold my hand If I could sip a Bacardi with Laurel and Hardy I'd rather be with you If I could go in a trailer with Taylor Be all alone with Tyrone If I could take all my chances with Errol's romances I'd rather be with you You're not with RKO, but still you're OK You'll never win an Oscar for actin' some day But you've got hair that's all your own and not a toupee And you'll never need a double if there's trouble If I could stay in a stupor with Cooper Possibly lure Vic Mature If I could fly to Sumatra with Frankie Sinatra I'd rather be with you MALE SINGER: If I could go to Havana with Lana DORIS: Or not have a care for Astaire MALE SINGER: If I could roll out the barrel with Madeleine Carroll I'd rather be with you DORIS: If I could just go and wander with Fonda Send me to stray Joel McCrea And if I thought I was able to get Mister Gable I'd rather be with you MALE SINGER: You've got the talent that they never could scout You don't need Technicolor in case you're in doubt For you are really at your best with all the lights out And they may not give you billin' but you're drillin' DORIS: If I could do somethin' loony with Rooney Get in a brawl with Jon Hall MALE SINGER: If I could say what's disturbin' to Deanna Durbin I'd rather be with you BOTH: I'd rather be with you **We have been unable to identify the male singer who duets with Doris Day on this song. It may be Butch Stone. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2005)
