(SPOKEN:) "Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen.  We'd, we'd like to 
dispense with the-uh, it so happens that we just happen to have a couple 
of arrangements along with us. And, uh, (Female fans squeal) Remember, 
your elders are sitting all around you. (Fans laugh)  We would like to, 
uh, do, as one of our encores, a very lovely song.  This, if we may 
digress for a minute, is not from a motion picture-it is from a show 
called "Carousel", it's a very lovely tune called "If I Loved You."
(One female squeals)

If I loved you, time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you, words wouldn't come in an easy way
'round in circles I'd go
Longin' to tell you but, afraid and shy,
I'd let my golden chances pass me by
 
Soon you'd leave me, off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you
 
(brief instrumental)

Soon you'd leave me, off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you
