HOLD ME, HOLD ME, HOLD ME from 1951 New York musical "Two On The Aisle" (Jule Styne (m) Betty Comden (l) Adolph Green (l) 1951) as recorded by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) with Kenny Burrell (guitar) Ray Brown (bass) & Ed Thigpen (drums) April 1959 You don't have to slay any dragons, Fight me duels like a knight, There's just one way I can tell You're doing right by this Nell, Hold me, hold me, hold me tight! You don't have to tear the stars from heaven, Make a record rocket flight, Or all the Vanderbilt loot Or wear a Casual Air suit, Hold me, hold me, hold me tight! There are those who may contend Diamonds are a girl's best friend, But don't go dig a diamond mine for me! Don't lay rubies at my feet, You can make my world complete With the best things in life that are free! So can't you see I only want your lovin'? Can't I make you see the light? Just stay here right by my side And I'll be well satisfied If you do one thing and do it right, Hold me, hold me, hold me tight! There are those who may contend Diamonds are a girl's best friend, But don't go dig a diamond mine for me! Don't lay rubies at my feet, You can make my world complete, The best things in life are free! So can't you see I only want your lovin'? Can't I make you see the light? Just stay here right by my side And I'll be well satisfied If you do one thing and do it right, Hold me, hold me, hold me tight! Hold me! Hold me, hold me tight!
