If I Only Had A Match

Writer(s): L. Morris / A. Johnston / G. W. Meyer
(From The Columbia Years, 1943-1952, Disc8)

If I only had a match, then my cares I’d soon forget.
All I need would be a match if I had a cigarette.
If I had a cigarette, I could watch the smoke rings curl.
But I’d really be all set, if I only had a girl.
If I had someone like you, to hurry to each night,
In a cozy bungalow, we’d know such sweet delight.
We could raise a family, and a little garden patch,
And to think this all could be, if I only had a match.
[musical interlude]
If I had someone like you, to hurry to each night,
In a cozy bungalow, we’d know such sweet delight.
We could raise a family, and a little garden patch,
And to think this all could be, if I only had a match.
