Lyrics:
Dinah Washington version:
If I were a bell
If I were a bell
Ask me how do I feel, now that we're cosy and clinging
Well sir all I can say is if I were a bell I'd be ringing!
From the moment we kissed goodnight
That's the way I just gotta behave,
And if I were lamp I'd light
Or if I were a banner I'd wave.
Ask me how do I feel, little me wit the quiet upbringing
Well sir all I can is if I were a gate I'd be swinging,
And if I were a watch I'd stop popping my spring
oh and if I were a bell I'd go ding dong ding dong ding.
Ask me how do I feel from this chemistry lesson I'm learning
Well sir all I can is if I were a bridge I'd be burning!
Well I knew my morale would crack from the wonderful way you looked
Boy if I were a duck I'd quack,
Or if I were a goose I'd be cooked.
Ask me how do I feel? Now that we're fondly caressing....
Pal if I were a salad, I know I'd be splashing my dressing....
Or if I were a eason I'd surely be spring yes
and if I were bell,
say if I were a bell
if I were a bell I'd go ding dong ding dong ding!

Show version:

SARAH:
Ask me...how do I feel,
Ask me now that we're cosy and clinging!
Well, sir, all I can say
Is if I were a bell I'd be ringing !
From the moment we kissed tonight
That's the way I just got to behave
Boy, if I were a lamp I'd light!
And if I were a banner I'd wave
Ask me how do I feel
Little me with my quiet upbringing
Well, sir, all I can say
Is if I were a gate I'd be swinging !
And if I were a watch I'd start
Popping my spring...
Oh, if I were a bell
I'd go ding-dong-ding-dong-ding
Ask me how do I feel
From this chemistry lesson I'm learnin'
Yeah, chemistry!
Well, sir, all I can say
Is if I were a bridge
I'd be burning
Yes, I'd do, my moral would crack
From the wonderful way that you look
Boy, if I were a duck I'd quack!
And if I were a goose I'd be cooked!
Ask me how do I feel
Ask me now that we're fondly caressing
Oh, if I were a salad
I know I'd be splashing my dressing
Ask me how to describe
This whole beautiful thing
Oh, if I were a bell
If I were a bell
Oh, if I were a bell
I'd go ding-dong-ding-dong
ding-dong-ding-dong-ding!
