Billy Holiday – A Fine Romance

A fine romance, with no kisses A fine romance, my friend this is We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes But you’re as cold as yesterday’s mashed potatoes A fine romance, you won’t nestle A fine romance, you won’t wrestle I might as well play bridge With my old maid aunt I haven’t got a chance This is a fine romance A fine romance, my good fellow You take romance, I’ll take jello You’re calmer than the seals In the Arctic Ocean At least they flap their fins To express emotion A fine romance with no quarrels With no insults and all morals I’ve never mussed the crease In your blue serge pants I never get the chance This is a fine...

Billy Holiday – Late Night Theme

Like the beat, beat, beat, Of the tom-tom; When the jungle shadows fall, Like the tick, tick, tock Of the stately clock, As it stands against the wall, Like the drip, drip, drip, Of the raindrops, When the summer show’r is through; So a voice within me Keeps repeating, You, you, you — Night and day You are the one, Only you Beneath the moon And under the sun. Whether near to me or far, It’s no matter, Darling, where you are I think of you Night and day. Day and night Why is it so, That this longing for you follows Where-ever I go? In the roaring traffic’s boom, In the silence of my lonely room, I think of you, Night and day. Night and day Under the hide of me There’s an Oh, such a hungry yearning, Burning inside of...

Billy Holiday – Doin’ Basie’ Thing

A cigarette that bares a lipstick’s traces An airline ticket to romantic places Still my heart has wings These foolish things remind me of you A tinkling piano in the next apartment Those stumblin’words That told you what my heart meant A fair ground painted swings These foolish things remind me of you You came, you saw, you conquered me When you did that to me I knew somehow this had to be The winds of march that made my heart a dancer A telephone that rings but who’s to answer Oh, how the ghost of you clings These foolish things remind me of...

Yeah! It’s been a hard days night And I’ve been working like a dog It’s been a hard days night I should be sleeping like a log But I when I get home to you I find the things that you do Will make me feel alright So why I love to come home ‘cos when I get you alone You know I’ll be okay When I’m home Ev’rything seems to be alright When I’m home Feeling you holding me tight, tight. Yeah! It’s been a hard days night And I’ve been working like a dog It’s been a hard days night I should be sleeping like a log But I when I get home to you I find the...

Billy Holiday – Solitude

In my solitude you haunt me With reveries of days gone by In my solitude you taunt me With memories that never die I sit in my chair Filled with despair Nobody could be so sad With gloom ev’rywhere I sit and I stare I know that I’ll soon go mad In my solitude I’m praying Dear Lord above Send back my...
