Make Believe (Show Boat USA 1936)

Jane Powell

[Frankie:] Janie , spare us a few minutes before the hour.
Something must be said for a song, from what was undoubtedly
Jerome Kern's most memorable score.
It's you and I, sweetie, with the one of the loveliest songs in that show, Show Boat.

[Frankie:] We could make believe I love you, only make believe that you love me.
[Janie:] All that fine piece of mind in pretending, couldn't you, couldn't I, couldn't we?
[Frankie:] Make believe our lips are blending in a phantom kiss or two or three,
[Janie:] Might as well make believe I love you, for to tell the truth, I do.
(interlude)
[Frankie:] Make believe our lips are blending in a phantom kiss or two or three.
[Both:] Might as well make believe I love you, for to tell truth, I do.
