but beautiful lyrics – billie holiday

johnny burke / james van heusen

love is funny or it’s sad

or it’s quiet or it’s mad

it’s a good thing or it’s bad

but beautiful

beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall

and i’m thinking i wouldn’t mind at all

love is tearful or it’s gay
it’s a problem or it’s a play

it’s heartache either way

but beautiful

and i’m thinking if you were mine

i’d never let you go

and that would be

but beautiful

i know

love is beautifull

i know
