Billie Holiday (Билли Холидей) Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me

Текст песни

Do Nothing till You Hear from Me is a song with music by Duke Ellington and lyrics by Bob Russell. It originated as a 1940 instrumental ("Concerto for Cootie") that was designed to highlight the playing of Ellington's lead trumpeter, Cootie Williams: Russell's words were added later. In 1944, Ellington's own recording of the song was a number one hit R&B chart for eight non consecutive weeks and number six on the pop chart .

"Do Nothing till You Hear from Me" has since been recorded by many famous vocalists, including Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Billie Holliday, Dr. John, Suzy Bogguss, Mary J. Blige, Tony Bennett, Lena Horne, Phil Collins, Robert Palmer, Robbie Williams and Nina Simone.
========================
Do nothing till you hear from me,
Pay no attention to what's said.
Why people tear the seams of anyone's dreams
Is over my head.

Do nothing till you hear from me,
At least consider our romance.
If you should take the words of others you've heard,
I haven't a chance.

True, I've been seen with someone new,
But does that mean that I've been untrue?
When we're apart,
The words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you.

Some kiss may cloud my memories,
And other arms may hold a thrill,
But please, do nothing till you hear it from me--
And you never will.

~interlude~

Some kiss may cloud my memories,
And other arms may hold a thrill,
But please, do nothing till you hear it from me--
And you never will.
