HELLO MY DARLING
as rec by Billie Holiday w Teddy Wilson & his Orch
Nov 28th 1938 New York
I'll forget your tender kiss,
I'll be brave after this,
I'll say "Hello my darling!" if we should meet again.
You'll forbid the tears to slip,
You'll behave, bite your lip,
And say "Hello my darling!" if we should meet again.
If we do meet again,
Our moments can be sweet again!
Oh my love,
Go my love,
Though it's a bitter pill I know, my love!
Please remember not to sigh
Over this last goodbye,
Just say "Hello my darlin'!" if we should meet again.
