i surrender dear lyrics – louis armstrong

we played the game of ‘stay away’
but it costs more than i can pay
without you i can’t make my way
i surrender dear

i may seem proud, i may act gay
oh, but it’s just a pose, i’m not that way
’cause deep down in my heart i say
i surrender dear

yes, little mean things we were doing, baby
must have been part of the game
lending spice to the wooing
oh, but i don’t care who’s to blame, yes

when night appears, shadows fall
[incomprehensible] mama, you’ll hear my poor heart call
to you my love, my life, my love, my all
oh, baby, i surrender dear

/ louis armstrong lyrics
