LET ME SING AND I'M HAPPY From the film "Mammy" (1930) (Irving Berlin) Al Jolson (Film Soundtrack) - 1930 Ben Selvin & His Orch.

What care I who makes the laws of a nation Let those who will take care of its rights and wrongs What care I who care for the world's affairs As long as I can sing its popular songs Let me sing a funny song With crazy words that roll along And if my song can start you laughing I'm happy, so happy Let me sing a sad refrain Of broken hearts that loved in vain And if my song can start you crying I'm happy Let me croon a low down blues To lift you out of your seat If my song can reach your shoes And start you tapping your feet, I'm happy Let me sing of Dixie's charms Cotton fields and mammy's arms And if my song can make you homesick I'm happy, I'm happy I don't want a seat on any big council A ruler's power is not what I'm seeking for Only let me feel that my songs appeal has reached your hearts I'll not ask for anything more Let me sing a funny song With crazy words that roll along And if my song can start you laughing I'm happy, so happy Let me sing a sad refrain Of broken hearts that loved in vain And if my song can start you crying I'm happy Let me croon a low down blues To lift you out of your seat If my song can reach your shoes And start you tapping your feet, I'm happy Let me sing of Dixie's charms Cotton fields and mammy's arms And if my song can make you homesick I'm happy, I'm happy
