IF YOU WERE IN MY PLACE (WHAT WOULD YOU DO)
(Duke Ellington / Irving Mills / Henry Nemo)
Recorded by: Mildred Bailey; Rosemary Clooney; Duke Ellington.
If you were in my place
what would you do
Would you hold me in the same embrace
as I'm holding you?
Would you kiss and sigh just as I
then for another kiss insist
Would you scheme and dream, treat me mean
and tell me that you can't resist?
If you were in my place, what would you say
Would you say to me as I say to you
'I feel that certain way'?
Like a heart that never spoke before
would you say as mine, 'It's you I adore'
If you were in my place,
darling what would you do?
