Jones, Tom - If Lyrics




Ow!!
Yeah ...
Yeah
Home grown, on the bone
All the channels show the
same old war zone
As I walk alone in the city
Makin' me an offer, now
don't they look pretty
New cinema
Live action, all the
noise of attraction
beats up
On the streets, the
sellers do mark up
Better than tellin' em
off, don't stock up
Shark, they don't bite
All that matters is
you're not here tonight
And now that I wonder
Am I gonna dig a hole
ten feet under
Under sea, under you,
under we, undivided,
Undecided

[Chorus:]
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you make you love me
to make you make you love me
Up north where the
snow grows colder
I travel onward 'cross the border

Looked up a girl that I
once knew frozen
I found that I was chosen
To be the follower of the deity
Make myself scarce while they
come to plea bargain
for my body and soul
All the flames go
around, surround me
I won't go

I need the ozone
I wanna cuddle up
behind your backbone
I never stay long
where I'm not wanted
I fell haunted
Yo brother
Where ya gonna go
Back to the warzone
To break down the walls

[Chorus:]
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you happy
to make you make you happy

If only I knew what I
should do, yeah
To make you make you love me
I bared my soul to
the golden traces
went to the forest of
the holy places
And now I wonder
Am I gonna dig a hole
ten feet under
Under sea, under me,
under you, under we,
undivided,
Undecided
Yeah ... yeah
[vocal breakdown]
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you happy
to make you make you happy
If I only knew
What I should do
To make you make you happy
to make you make you happy
If I only knew
What I could do
To make you, make you love me
to make you make you love me
If I only knew
What I should do
To make you make you love me
If I only knew what I should do
If I only knew what I should do

    WOW WOW WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    From a mad keen 74yo Aussie fan.

  3. Chong-Hwa Cooper

    Is young or old tom jones singing If? either way, i weep listening the song. it is such a beautiful song.

    billy nimmo

    I love this song..

    Bens_97

    32 year old Tom Jones was singing it. It is off of his album 'Close Up' released in 1972.

  4. MrAkkountakkountov

    sure he does, Tom is, oh, so luckily, no Philip Kirkorov, no Grigory Leps, no Leonid Agutin, in fact, no Russian pop-rubbish, but a true British and world genius of a song
    ))
    BLESS TOM JONES, AWAY WITH RUSSIAN POP-GARBAGE )))

  5. TheLivingroomSinger

    Sir Tom's performance here is remarkable! I love this version, its the very best of this song. I have tried to come close to this, but he is the man!

  6. carlobi

    @sormu, I don't think anyone can get near-to-perfect to tom jones. You may simply have a different recording.

  7. sormu16

    I have the original! It does not sound like this. I think it is a Tom Jones soundalike. But a near-to-perfect one.

    Bens_97

    It is the same as the LP version.

  8. TheSoundsage

    I was never a big fan of Tom Jones, but his rendition of this song is remarkable- he effortlessly holds the last note for over 15 seconds!

  9. misty861

    I just love this song and love Tom singing it...thanks for posting.

  10. sgalways

    Never heard anyone sing this except "Bread". I never knew Tom Jones recorded it. It is beautiful. Thanks for posting!
