(Gus Kahn/Walter Donaldson)

Caught in a riptide
Torn between two loves
The old and the new

Lost in a riptide
Where will it take me?
What shall I do?

My heart is tossed on a sea of emotion
One love offers romance
The other devotion

A new love is calling
The old love is pleading
I’m caught in a riptide
What shall I do?
