IF I GIVE UP THE SAXOPHONE, WILL YOU COME BACK TO ME? Sammy Fain / Irving Kahal / David Raksin as rec by Eddie Cantor w The Victor Studio Orch cond by Leonard Joy Nights are long and lonely since we've been apart; You'd come back if you but knew how I miss you, sweetheart! You said I wasn't playing fair and so you had to go; There's a question I must ask you, dear, your answer I must know! If I give up the saxophone, Will you come back to me? If I give up the toodle-oodle-oo, Will we bill and coo Like we used to do? I know the fault was all my own, You warned me time and time! "Lips that touch a saxophone", You said, "Shall ne'er touch mine!", But if I give up the saxophone, Will you come back to me? My father plays the piccolo, My mother plays the drum, My brother plays the horses, Just because he is a bum-tiddley-um-bum, bum-bum-bum, Bum-tiddley-um-tum-tum! My uncle plays harmonica, And plays it way off key! My grandmama plays tennis, 'Cause she lives in Tennesse-see-see-see, See-see-see! Now if I give up the saxophone, Will you come back to me? If I give up the toodle-oodle-ay, Anything you say If you come back to stay! And when I go to bed at night, How all alone I feel, I found out that a saxophone Has got no sax appeal! So if I give up the saxophone, Will you come back to me? (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2011)
