The one I love belongs to somebody else, He sings his tender song for somebody else, And even though he has his arms around me, I know his thoughts are wrong for somebody else. He spends his gold, I know, on somebody else, I'll bet he's not so cold to somebody else. It's tough to be alone on the shelf, It's worse to fall in love by yourself, The one I love belongs to somebody else. The one I love belongs to somebody else, He sings his tender song for somebody else, And even though he has his arms around me, I know his thoughts are all for somebody else. He spends his gold, I know, on somebody else, And I'll bet he's not so cold to somebody else. He was so kind, so sweet and so good, Until we went out to live in Hollywood, The one I love belongs to somebody else. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2012) ************************ THE ONE I LOVE (BELONGS TO SOMEBODY ELSE) (Isham Jones / Gus Kahn) As sung by Ella Fitzgerald The one I love belongs to somebody else She means her tender songs for somebody else And even when I have my arms around her I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else The hands I held belong to somebody else I'll bet they're not so cold to somebody else It's tough to be alone on the shelf It's worse to fall in love by yourself The one I love belongs to somebody else The one I love belongs to somebody else ********************** ONE I LOVE BELONGS TO SOMEBODY ELSE (Al Jolson) as recorded by Al Jolson with Isham Jones & his Orchestra January 17th 1924 I'm unhappy, so unhappy, for I can see The one I love don't care for me, And I'd be happy, oh so happy, but it was fate That it was too late when I happened to find her. The one I love belongs to somebody else, She means her tender song for somebody else, And even when I have my arms around her, I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else. The hands I hold belong to somebody else, I'll bet they're not so cold for somebody else. It's tough enough to be on the shelf, It's worse to fall in love by yourself, The one I love belongs to somebody else. The one, the one I love belongs to somebody else, She means her tender song for somebody else, And even when I have my arms around her, I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else. The hands, the hands I hold belong to somebody else, somebody else, I'll bet they're not so cold to somebody else. When I make love she's more like a pal, She calls me John and my name is Al! The one I love belongs to somebody else. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - November 2012)
