Texas Tyler & His Oklahoma Melody Boys - 1946 Bill Lawrence - 1949 Al Morgan & The Keytones - 1951 Pat Boone - 1955 As recorded by DICK POWELL: I'm not so much on reading The books that improve one's mind 'Cause that's all right for scholars But I'm not the scholarly kind I just go in for reading The sort of thing I find In my little red book, I see somehow All the girls that I knew and I'm wondering who Can be kissing them now Down through memory lane I love to look At the little blue sighs and the little white lies In my little red book But there's a girl I had a yen for Back in nineteen-thirty-three That's the one I'd go again for And if she came back to me Everybody, but her, I'd overlook I'd have only one flame, there'd be only one name In my little red book (Instrumental Break) But there's one girl I had a yen for Back in nineteen-thirty-three That's the one I'd go again for And if she came back to me Everybody, but her, I'd overlook I'd have only one flame, there'd be only one name In my little red book ******************** As recorded by VERA LYNN, March 1938: In my little red book, I see somehow All the boys that I knew and I'm wondering who Can be kissing them now Down through memory lane I love to look At the little blue sighs and the little white lies In my little red book But there's one boy I had a yen for Back in nineteen-thirty-three That's the one I'd go again for And if he came back to me Everybody, but him, I'd overlook I'd have only one flame, there'd be only one name In my little red book I've had a few romances That promised me happiness I thought they'd last forever But I surely missed my guess For now each one is only A name and an address In my little red book, I see somehow All the boys that I knew and I'm wondering who Can be kissing them now Down through memory lane I love to look At the little blue sighs and the little white lies In my little red book But there's one boy I had a yen for Back in nineteen-thirty-three That's the one I'd go again for And if he came back to me Everybody, but him, I'd overlook I'd have only one flame, there'd be only one name In my little red book (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2017)
