On The Sentimental Side lyrics

Johnny burke / j. monaco

If you wonder why Im near you
Even though Ive been denied
Im inclined to be a little
On the sentimental side
I suppose I should forget you
If I had an ounce of pride
But I guess I cant help being
On the sentimental side
I should act gay
Laugh it off and say, farewell
Say it just didnt wear well
But Im not that way
Im in hopes youll think it over
And perhaps be satisfied
With a simple sort of person
On the sentimental side

I should act gay
Laugh it off and say, farewell
Say it just didnt wear well
But Im not that way
Im in hopes youll think it over
And perhaps be satisfied
With a simple sort of person
On the sentimental side
