(Walter Donaldson / Gus Kahn)

Lew Stone & His Band

Riptide, caught in a riptide
Torn between two loves, the old and the new
Riptide, lost in a riptide
Where will it take me, what shall I do

My heart is tossed on a sea of emotion
One love offers romance, the other devotion
A new love is calling, the old love is bleeding
I’m caught in a riptide, what shall I do
