As recorded by MAXINE SULLIVAN, with Dick Hyman, Oscar Pettifird & Osie Johnson - July 3rd 1962, New York: If they would ask me, I would say I have had a thrill or so, But that goes back to yesterday, A long time ago! I ran around with my own little crowd, The usual laughs, not often but loud, And in the world that I knew I didn't know about you. Chasing after the rain on the merry-go-round, Just takin' my fun where it could be found, And yet what else could I do? I didn't know about you. Darling, now I know I had the loneliest yesterday, Every day in your arms I know for once in my life, I'm living. Had a good time every time I went out, Romance was a thing I kidded about, How could I know about love? I didn't know about you. Darling, now I know I had the loneliest yesterday, Every day in your arms I know for once in my life, I'm living. Had a good time every time I went out, Romance was a thing I kidded about, How could I know about love? How could I know it was true? Until I opened my eyes, I didn't know about you!
