mose allison – if you only knew lyrics

Loading...

[piano solo]

[verse 1]
if you only knew
all the problems that a man like me has to face
if you only knew
all the little things that keep a man from his place

[chorus]
i wouldn’t wanna bring you down
i just don’t wanna see you made a clown
n0body’s little dream came true
if you only knew
[verse 2]
if you only knew
all the dealing that goes on in back of the store
if you only knew
how the ones who have a lot can’t wait to get more

[chorus]
i wouldn’t wanna cramp your style
but if you really wanna make it all worthwhile
you’ll have to have your own breakthrough
if you only knew

[instrumental break]

[verse 3]
if you only knew
what could happen to a man for telling the truth
if you only knew
all the scruples that go down in gin and vermouth

[chorus]
i wouldn’t wanna steer you wrong
but if you really wanna sing your own little song
you’re gonna have to lose a few
if you only knew
[outro]
if you only knew
if you only knew
if you only knew
if you only knew
