As recorded by BILLY FURY:
How many nights must I be sad and blue
How many days will I still think of you
Till I forget your little baby ways
How many nights, how many days
Ummmm, how many lips must I press close to mine
How many mem'ries must I leave behind
How come I love you in the same old way
How many nights, how many days
I miss you so, you'll never know
Though we're all through, my love still grows, grows, grows
Tell me how long must I be sad and blue
Until I'm through forgetting you
And now I know that you're the only one
And darling after all is said and done
I know that years from now I still will say
How many nights how many days
I miss you so, you'll never know
Though we're all through, my love still grows, grows, grows
Tell me how long must I be sad and blue
Until I'm through forgetting you
Oh, won't you tell me how long must I be sad and blue
How many nights how many days
How many nights how many days
How many nights how many days
And now I know that you're the only one
And, darling, after all is said and done
I know that years from now I still will say
How many nights, how many
How many nights, how many
How many nights, how many days

As recorded by ALMA COGAN:
How many nights must I be sad and blue
How many days will I still think of you
It takes a lot for love to fade away
How many nights, how many days
How many lips must I press close to mine
How many mem'ries must I leave behind
How come I love you in the same old way
How many nights, how many days
I miss you so, you'll never know
Though we're all through, my love still grows
Tell me how long must I be sad and blue
How many nights, how many days
Oh, I only know that you're the only one
And, darlin', after all is said and done
I know that years from now I still will say
How many nights, how many days
I miss you so, you'll never know
Though we're all through, my love still grows
Tell me how long must I be sad and blue
How many nights, how many days
Oh, won't you tell me how long must I be sad and blue
How many nights, how many days
Oh, how many nights, how many days
Oh, how many nights, how many days
How many nights, how many days
