(m) Oscar Hammerstein II (m) Richard Rodgers (I) Musical: Carousel by John Raitt & Jan Clayton (P) Perry Como (RR) 1957 film version by Shirley Jones & Gordon MacRae (RR) 1965 by Chad & Jeremy (CR) Barbra Streisand
If I loved you, time and again I would try to say
All I’d want you to know if I loved you
Words wouldn’t come in an easy way ’round in circles I’d go

Longin’ to tell you but afraid and shy
I’d let my golden chances pass me by.
Soon you’d leave me, off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know how I loved you, if I loved you
