The One I Love (Belongs to Somebody Else)
Music by Isham Jones
Words by Gus Kahn
Well, now, the one I love belongs to somebody else,
She means her tender songs for somebody else,
And even when I have my arms around her,
I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else.
Yes, the hands I hold belong to somebody else,
I'll bet they're not so cold to somebody else,
It's tough to be alone on the shelf,
Worse to fall in love by yourself,
The one I love belongs to somebody else.
Frank: Yes, the one I love belongs to somebody else,
Sy: Ain’t like a fair, you ain’t nowhere,
Sy: That’s why
Frank: She sings her songs to somebody else,
Sy: Boo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo,
Frank: And even when I have my arms around her,
Sy: Well, Dad, you know,
Frank: Her thoughts are for somebody else,
Frank: And when I hold her hands,
Sy: You know,
Frank: That they belong to someone,
Frank: Somebody else,
Sy: And you can bet,
Frank: They’re not so cold to somebody else,
Sy: Well, it’s tough to be alone on a shelf,
Frank: And it’s worse to be in love by yourself,
Both: Like when the one you love belongs to somebody else!
