As recorded by THE BOSWELL SISTERS (piano - Martha Boswell), October 3rd 1930, Los Angeles: Tell me where he is, tell me where he goes, Tell me what he does, tell me who he knows, But don't tell him what happened to me, oh-oh! Tell me where he is and tell me everywhere he goes, Tell me what he does and tell me who he knows, But don't tell him what happened to me! If he says his life now is like a song, Tell him he was right and tell him I was wrong, But don't tell him what happened to me! Let him remember me as I used to be, When his love for me made me strong and free. Ask him if his new kisses are to him divine, Ask him if they thrill him just as much as mine, But don't tell him what happened to me! I loved him, I lost him, but then I find He is always on my mind. Tell me where he is, tell me where he goes, Tell me what he does, tell me who he knows, But don't tell him what happened to me! (scat) Ask him if the new kisses are divine, Ask him if they thrill just as much as mine, But don't tell him what happened to poor little me! (scat) Let him remember me just as I used to be, When his love for me made me strong and free, oh! (scat) If he says his life now is like a song, Tell him he was right, tell him I was wrong, (scat) (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2013) ******************** As recorded by CHICK BULLOCK, 1st October 1930, New York: I loved her, I lost her, she craved a thrill I can't forget her, I love her still It's over, all over, and yet I find That she's always on my mind Tell me where she is, tell me where she goes Tell me what she does, tell me who she knows But don't tell her what's happened to me If she says her life now is like a song Tell her she was right, tell her I was wrong But don't tell her what's happened to me Let her remember me as I used to be When her love for me made me strong and free Ask her if the new kisses are divine Ask her if they thrill just as much as mine But don't tell her what's happened to me Tell me if she's gay, tell me if she's blue Happy all the day, lonely all night through But don't tell her what's happened to me Tell me if she yearns for me now and then Tell me if she might love me once again But don't tell her what's happened to me I'd rather nod away the least sympathy Rather have her hate, than to pity me If she finds delight with somebody new Kissing her goodnight as I used to do Please don't tell her what's happened to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
