Lyric "I'd Rather Be With You"
I'd Rather Be With You

MALE SINGER:
If I could sit at a table with Grable
Ride in a car with Lamarr
If I could dance with a sweet chick like Garbo or Dietrich
I'd rather be with you

If I could just cuddle nearer to Shearer
Go on a tour with Lamour
If I could show off the muscle to Rosalind Russell
I'd rather be with you

It won't be Adrian who put's you in clothes
You don't do Maxie Factor to powder your nose
And Grauman's theatre doesn't have the prints of your toes
And without the help of Zanuck you're a panic

If I could go to a parson with Garson
Do just as well with Blondell
If I could share a veranda with Carmen Miranda
I'd rather be with you

DORIS:
If I could wear something lacy for Tracy
Let Ray Milland hold my hand
If I could sip a Bacardi with Laurel and Hardy
I'd rather be with you

If I could go in a trailer with Taylor
Be all alone with Tyrone
If I could take all my chances with Errol's romances
I'd rather be with you

You're not with RKO, but still you're OK
You'll never win an Oscar for actin' some day
But you've got hair that's all your own and not a toupee
And you'll never need a double if there's trouble

If I could stay in a stupor with Cooper
Possibly lure Vic Mature
If I could fly to Sumatra with Frankie Sinatra
I'd rather be with you

MALE SINGER:
If I could go to Havana with Lana
DORIS:
Or not have a care for Astaire
MALE SINGER:
If I could roll out the barrel with Madeleine Carroll
I'd rather be with you

DORIS:
If I could just go and wander with Fonda
Send me to stray Joel McCrea
And if I thought I was able to get Mister Gable
I'd rather be with you

MALE SINGER:
You've got the talent that they never could scout
You don't need Technicolor in case you're in doubt
For you are really at your best with all the lights out
And they may not give you billin' but you're drillin'

DORIS:
If I could do somethin' loony with Rooney
Get in a brawl with Jon Hall
MALE SINGER:
If I could say what's disturbin' to Deanna Durbin
I'd rather be with you

BOTH:
I'd rather be with you
