In My Little Red Book

< instrumental opening  > 
 
In my little red book,
I see somehow,
all the girls that I knew
and I'm wondering who,
can be kissing her now . . .

Down through memory lane,
I love to look,
at the little blue sighs
and the little white lies
in my little red book . . .

But there's one girl I had a yen for,
back in 1933,
that's the one I'd go again for,
and if she came back to me . . .

Everybody but her,
I'd overlook,
I'd have only one flame
there'd be only one name,
in my little red book . . .
