OLD ENOUGH As sung by Margaret Whiting with the Mellowmen {100 The Original Tracks - Remastered } Released May 2013 recorded in Los Angeles on March 23rd 1956 with Frank De Vol & his Orchestra with vocal backing by The Mellomen Have they ever been in love Those who laugh at me Those who say that I'm not old enough How much older must I be? Is it written in a book Or the stars above That until our heart is old enough It may never fall in love. When my sweetheart says good night to me And he leaves me with a tear Who can say that I'm not old enough When every moment is a year. 'Til he's mine forever more And we never part Old enough I am and bold enough To be faithful to my heart. Notes: Margaret Whiting, daughter of songwriter Richard Whiting, was a 1940s/50s/60s pop, jazz, C & W singer and TV personality. She was born in Detroit USA. Her voice was wonderfully mellow, particularly in the lower registers, and an attraction for many. She had a number of hit recordings and continued to entertain until the 1990s. She was known by her adoring fans as the voice of MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT, the work of Blackburn/Suessdorf which her mentor, Johnny Mercer first suggested she record. She first sang for Mercer when she was seven years old and he eventually signed her as one of his first recording artists in the early 1940s. This song ultimately became a huge hit and over the years, a picturesque all time standard. OLD ENOUGH was released as the 'A' side of a 7 inch Capitol Records single in Britain in June 1956.
