On The Sentimental Side

On The Sentimental Side

(James Monaco / John Burke)

Geraldo and his Orchestra

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, fare-thee-well
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
