    The Ink Spots
    Written by Irving Berlin

    This version not released as a single
    Five versions charted in 1926, two in 1944, and two more in 1945.

    MONOLOGUE: I'll be loving you, babe, only always. With a real crazy love that's
    true always. When these dreams that you've planned.. need a little helpin' hand,
    well, say, honey, I'll understand always. Yeah, always! 'cause things may not be
    fair, always. But that's exactly when I'm gonna be true always. Not for just sixty
    minutes, not for twenty-four hours, not even for a whole darned YEAR, three
    hundred and sixty-five days, but I mean always!!

    Things may not be fair always
    That's when I'll be there always
    Not for just an hour
    And not for just a day
    Not for just a year but alwaysWriter/s: IRVING BERLIN
