if i were you lyrics – billie holiday

buddy bernier / robert d. emmerich

if i were you
here’s what i’d do
i’d give my heart a break
instead of trying to break my heart

it i were you
i’d do this too
i’d string along with me
instead of keepin’ me on a string

i’d love me the whole day long
you’d never catch me nappin’
wouldn’t have a change of heart
not for fear
that such a thing should happen

it i were you
here’s what i’d do
i’d stick to me
my whole life through
it i were you
