If You Could See Her lyrics

Album: Cabaret

Emcee (appearing with a Gorilla)

I know what you're thinking:
You wondered why I chose her
Out of all the ladies in the world.
That's just a first impression,
What good's a first impression?
If you knew her like I do
It would change you're point of view.

If you could see her through my eyes
You wouldn't wonder at all.
If you could see her through my eyes
I guarantee you would fall (like I did).
When we're in public togther
I hear society moan.
But if they could see her through my eyes
Maybe they'd leave us alone.

Spoken: (There you are my liebling. Your favourite!)

How can I speak of her virtues,
I don't know where to begin?
She's clever, she's smart, she reads musics
She doesn't smoke or drink gin (like I do).
Yet when we're walking together
They sneer if I'm holding her hand.
But if they could see her through my eyes
Maybe they'd all understand.

(Emcee and Gorilla dance)
Why can't they leave us alone.

Spoken: Meine Damen und Herren, Madames et Monsieurs
Ladies and Gentleman
I ask you, Is it a crime to fall in love?
Can we ever choose where the heart leads us?
All we ask is eine bisschen Verstandnis
A little understanding
Why can't the world leben und leben lassen?
'Live und let live....'

I understand your objection
I grant you the problem's not small
But if you could see her through my eyes
She wouldn't look Jewish at all.
