I'VE GOT TO SING A TORCH SONG Harry Warren (m) Al Dubin (l) 1933 as rec by Bing Crosby w Jimmie Grier & his Orch June 16th 1933 Los Angeles also rec by- Hal Kemp & his Orch '37 Rudy Vallee & his Connecticut Yankees A clown can laugh when he's unhappy, Sometimes I wish I were a clown! I'd like to sing away my sorrow, Every sorrow, every frown. A lively jingle never cheers me, I sing of love when no-one hears me. I've gotta sing a torch song, For that's the way I feel; When I feel a thing That I can sing, It must be real. I couldn't sing a gay song, It wouldn't be sincere; I could never croon A happy tune Without a tear. I have my dreams, but one by one They vanish in the sky. I try to smile and face the sun, But romance passes by. I've gotta sing a torch song To someone far apart, For the torch I bear Is burning there, Right in my heart! I have my dreams, but one by one They vanish in the sky. I try to smile and face the sun, But romance passes by. I've gotta sing a torch song To someone far apart, For the torch I bear Is burning there, Right in my heart! (Contributed by Peter Akers - July 2009)
