On The Sentimental Side

On The Sentimental Side

(James Monaco / Johnny Burke)

Lew Stone & His Band

If you wonder why I'm near you
Even though I've been denied
I'm 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 can't help being
On the sentimental side

I should act gay
Laugh it off and say, farewell
Say it just didn't wear well
But I'm not that way

I'm in hopes you'll think it over
And perhaps be satisfied
With a simple sort of person
On the sentimental side
