Verse:
I'd like to make your gold -en dream come true, dear, If I on -ly had my way.
A par -a -dise this world would seem to you, dear, If I on -ly had my way.
 
Chorus:
If I Had My Way, dear, for -ev -er, There'd be
A gar -den of ro -ses for you and for me,
A thou -sand and one things, dear, I would do,
Just for you, Just for you, Just for you.
If I Had My Way we would nev -er grow old,
And sun -shine I'd bring ev -'ry day.
You would reign All a -lone, Like a queen on a throne,
If I Had My Way.
