If You Only Had My Disposition

Music by Albert Von Tilzer

Words by Chas McCarron


There’s a reason why I look as I do

I am never satisfied,

Don’t seem to get enough of you

Want you always by my side,

I can’t help it if I love to be loved,

Lovin’ was born in me,

I just can’t make my heart behave

Oh, honey, can’t you see



If you only had my disposition,

You would love me all the time,

Right in your arms you would take me,

And you’d love me, you’d love me,

You’d have to love me,

‘Cause I’m lonely, lonely, for you only

And I want you all the time

Oh dear, my Daddy came from Paree

Oh dear, my Mother’s Spanish you see,

If you only had my disposition

You’d be lovin’ me all of the time



People talk a lot in our neighborhood

Say I have a roguish eye,

You never live long being good

If that’s the case I’ll never die

I’d be awf’ly nice to someone I know,

If they’d be nice to me,

I’d hang around if I were you

And never let me be
