What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

(Richard Whiting / Leo Robin)

New Mayfair Orchestra

It was late and she was lonely
And she begged for sympathy, only
Now I ask you, what would you do?
In a case like that

If her head was on your shoulder
And she grew a little bit bolder
Now I ask you, what would you do?
With a girl like that

Do you think you could resist her
Do you think you wouldn't have kissed her
Would you treat her like a sister?
Now come on be honest, sister?

If you saw her turn the light off
Would you get your had and get right out
Now I ask you what would you do
That's what I did too
