Track Title: I've Got To Sing A Torch Song Album Title: Portrait of Bing Crosby Prime Artist: Bing Crosby (Harry Lillis C.) Lyrics by: Al Dubin Music by: Harry Warren From the Film: Gold Diggers of 1933 (F) Lyrics: A clown can laugh when he's unhappy, Sometimes I wish I were a clown. I'd like to sing away my sorrow, Ev'ry sorrow, ev'ry frown. A lively jingle never cheers me, I sing of love, but no one hears me. I've got to sing a torch song, For that's the way I feel; When I feel a thing, Then I can sing, It must be real. I couldn't sing a gay song, It wouldn't be sincere, I could never croon A happy tune Without a tear. I have my dreams, but one by one, They vanish in the sky; I try to smile and face the sun, But romance passes by. I've got to sing a torch song To someone far apart, For the torch I bear Is burning there, Right in my heart.
