IF HE WALKED INTO MY LIFE From the musical "Mame" (Lyrics & Music : Jerry Herman) Eydie Gormé Mame: Where is that boy with the bugle? My little love was always my big romance; Where's that boy with the bugle? And why did I ever buy him those damn long pants? Did he need a stronger hand? Did he need a lighter touch? Was I soft or was I tough? Did I give enough? Did I give too much? At the moment when he needed me, Did I ever turn away? Would I be there when he called, If he walked into my life today. Were his days a little dull? Were his nights a little wild? Did I overstate my plan? Did I stress the man? And forget the child. And there must have been a million things. That my heart forgot to say. Would I think of one or two, If he walked into my life today. Should I blame the times I pampered him, Or blame the times I bossed him; What a shame! I never really found the boy, Before I lost him. Were the years a little fast? Was his world a little free? Was there too much of a crowd? All too lush and loud and not enough for me. Though I'll ask myself my whole life long, What went wrong along the way; Would I make the same mistakes If he walked into my life today? If that boy with the bugle, If he walked into my life today. Patrick: Where is that girl with the promise? The girl who tried to show me what love could be; Where is that girl with the promise? And why do I feel the someone to blame is me? Did she need a stronger hand? Did she need a lighter touch? Was I soft or was I tough? Did I give enough? Did I give too much? At the moment that she needed me, Did I ever turn away? Would I be there when she called, If she walked into my life today. Did she mind the lonely nights? Did she count the empty days? Was I silent, was I cold? Was I quick to scold? Was I slow to praise? And there must have been a million things. That my heart forgot to say. Would I think of one or two, If she walked into my life today. Should I blame the times I pampered her, Or blame the times I bossed her; What a shame! I never really found the girl, Before I lost her. Were the years a little fast? Was her world a little free? Was there too much of a crowd? All too lush and loud and not enough for me. Though I'll ask myself my whole life long, What went wrong along the way; Would I make the same mistakes If she walked into my life today? If that girl with the promise, If he walked into my life today. (Contributed by boB Cartlidge - July 2002)
