If I'm Not For Myself
Words by Dottie Burman, Music by Robin Field

If I'm not for myself, who will be?
But if I'm only for myself, what am I?
Why can't I be for you and for me,
If I try?
If I'm not for myself, who will be?
But if I'm only for myself, what then?
What a lonely little life I can foresee.
If not now, when?

These wonderful words are so good
If you really use them -
Not only when you think you should,
But when you freely choose them.

If I'm not for myself,who will be?
But if I'm only for myself, what am I?
Maybe I can be for you and for me,
If I try!
If I'm not for myself, who will be?
But if I'm only for myself, what then?
I won't wait until tomorrow to begin.
If not now, when?

If you find the place in your heart
These words can appeal to,
Then you'll know that you are enough
And feel this is the real you.

If I'm not for myself, who will be?
But if I'm only for myself -
Say it again!
Then I can be for you and for me.
Ah-men!
If not now, If not now, If not now, If not now
When?
