Say It with Music  (1921) 
by Irving Berlin

[Verse]

(Girl) Music is a language lovers understand,
Melody and romance wander hand in hand.
Cupid never fails assisted by a band,
So if you have something sweet to tell her.

[Refrain]

Say it with music,
Beautiful music.
Somehow they'd rather be kiss'd
To the strains of Chopin or Liszt.
A melody mellow,
Played on a cello,
Helps Mister Cupid along
So say it with a beautiful song.

[Verse]

(Boy) There's a tender message deep down in my heart,
Something you should know, but how am I to start?
Sentimental speeches never could impart
Just exactly what I want to tell you.
