Clueless about the right syntax. (GETDATE)

Question: I would like to use GETDATE() in combination with IF THEN.

SELECT datepart(mm,getdate()) WHEN 1 print ''yada yada yada" ELSE print "yoda yoda yoda"

Since I'm a noob with SQL I can't seem to get the notation right.
I have searched myself silly on the web for the answer but with no luck.
Could someone tell me what the correct notation should be?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Clyde.
