Are You Sincere

Album: Lonely Street (1958)
Charted: 3
  • Are you sincere when you say "I love you?"
    Are you sincere when you say "I'll be true?"
    Do you mean every word that my ears have heard?
    I'd like to know (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Which way to go (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Will our love grow? (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Are you sincere? (are you sincere?)

    Are you sincere (lo-lo-lo-lo)
    When you say (lo-lo-lo-lo)
    You miss me? (you miss me)
    Are you sincere (lo-lo-lo-lo)
    Every time (lo-lo-lo-lo)
    You kiss me? (you kiss me)
    And are really mine every day, all the time?
    I'd like to know (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Which way to go (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Will our love grow? (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba)
    Are you sincere? (are you sincere?)

    Are you really mine every day, all the time?
    I'd like to know (I'd like to know)
    Which way to go (which way to go)
    Will our love grow ? (will our love grow?)
    Are you sincere? (are you sincere) Writer/s: LUCKY MOELLER, WAYNE P. WALKER
