If Love Were All

If Love Were All
music & lyric by Noel Coward

Fate may often treat me meanly, but I keenly pursue a little mirage in the blue;
Determination helps me through.
Though I never grumble, life's a jumble, indeed,
And in my efforts to succeed I've had to formulate a creed.

I believe in doing what I can; in crying when I must;
In laughing when I choose.
Hey, ho, if love were all, I should be lonely.

I believe the more you love a man, the more you give your trust,
The more you're bound to lose.
Although when shadows fall, I think,
If only somebody splendid really needed me; someone affectionate and dear,
Cares would be ended if I knew that he wanted to have me near.

But. I believe that since my life began, the most I've had is just a talent to amuse.
Hey ho, if love were all.
Hey ho, if love were all.
