Say It With Music

Album: The Irving Berlin Song Book (1921)
  • Music is a language lovers understand
    Melody and romance wander hand in hand
    Cupid never fails assisted by a band
    So if you have something sweet to tell her

    Say it with music
    Beautiful music
    Somehow they'd rather be kissed
    To the strains of Chopin or Liszt
    A melody mellow
    Played on a cello
    Helps mister Cupid along
    So say it with a beautiful song

    There's a tender message deep down in my heart
    Something you should know, but how am I to start?
    Sentimental speeches never could impart
    Just exactly what I want to tell you Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
