ANDY WILLIAMS


If Ever I Would Leave You Lyrics

Music by Frederick Loewe and Words by Alan Jay Lerner
from the Broadway musical "Camelot"
(found on beaucoup LP's by everyone ranging from Percy Faith to Robert Goulet
and John Gary, Aretha Franklin, and Tom Jones but apparently NEVER done as a
single by ANYONE to make even the "Bubbling Under the Hot 100" at Billboard!)


If ever I would leave you, it wouldn't be in summer
Seeing you in summer, I never would go
Your hair streaked with sunlight, your lips red as flame
Your face with a luster that puts gold to shame

But if I'd ever leave you, it couldn't be in autumn
How I'd leave in autumn, I never will know
I've seen how you sparkle when fall nips the air
I know you in autumn and I must be there

And could I leave you running merrily through the snow
Or on a wintry evening when you catch the fire's glow

If ever I would leave you, how could it be in springtime
Knowing how in spring I'm bewitched by you so
Oh, no, not in springtime, summer, winter, or fall
No never could I leave you at all
