Nat King Cole – If You Can't Smile & Say Yes Lyrics

(louis jordan, timmie rodgers)

Knock me a kiss, you’ll never miss

When I’m ready to go.

But if you can’t smile and say yes,

Please don’t cry and say no!

Squeeze me a squoze in these fine clothes,

Mmmm…i love you so.

But if you can’t smile and say yes,

Please don’t cry and say no!

When I ask for a date, the answer is no.

You don’t know what you’re saying.

Don’t you know the war’s on,

Everything is rationed,

How ’bout that jive, keep me alive?

Baby, let bygones be bygones,

’cause men are scarce as nylons.

And if you can’t smile and say yes,

Please don’t cry and say no!

~interlude~

Baby, let bygones be bygones,

’cause men are scarce as nylons.

And if you can’t smile and say yes,

Please don’t cry and say no, no, no, baby

Please don’t cry and say no.
