I HAD A LITTLE SORROW (Bob Cooper / Edna St Vincent Millay) as recorded by June Christy 1959 I had a little sorrow, Born of a little sin. I found a room All damp with gloom And I locked myself within. And "Little sorrow, weep!", said I, And "Little sin, pray God to die!", While I upon the floor will lie And think How bad I've been! Alas for pious planning, It mattered not a whit! For all the gloom Within that room The lamp might have been lit. My little sorrow wouldn't weep, My little sin would go to sleep. To save my soul I couldn't keep My graceless mind on it's... So up I got in anger And I took a book I had, And then I put a ribbon in my hair To please a passing lad. But one thing there's no getting by, "I've been a wicked girl!", said I, "But if I can't be sorry, why, I might as well be glad!". (Transcribed by Peter Akers - December 2015)
