VANITY (Manus / Bierman / G. Wood) with Paul Weston and his Orchestra Lyrics as released by Sarah Vaughan 1951 Also as in < The Complete Columbia Recordings (1949 – 1953) > released 1988 They call it vanity Because I'd rather be all by myself Instead of laughing with the crowd. If I don't care to be part of their gaiety They often say to me, don't be so proud. But how are they to know I'm lookin’ high and low For love that used to be my own. I never even glance when offered new romance I can't because I'm yours alone. ‘Till you forgive again I'll never live again So will it be as long as we are far apart. It may be vanity to think you’ll come to me But is it vanity to hide a broken heart? (bridge) ‘Till you forgive again Well I'll never live again So will it be as long as we are far apart. It may be vanity, to think you’ll come to me But is it vanity to hide a broken heart? ******************* VANITY Alternate lyrics as released by Sarah Vaughan Sep 30 2012 < The Very Best Of Sarah Vaughan > (Remastered Version) They call it vanity Because I'd rather be all by myself Instead of laughing with the crowd. If I don't care to be part of their gaiety They often say to me, don't be so proud. But how are they to know I'm lookin’ high and low For love that used to be my own. I never even glance when I’m offered new romance I can't because I'm yours alone. ‘Till you forgive again I'll never live again So will it be as long as we are far apart. It may be vanity to think you’ll come to me But is it vanity to hide a broken heart? (bridge) But how are they to know I'm lookin’ high and low For love that used to be my own. I never even glance when I'm offered new romance I can't, I can’t because I'm yours alone. ‘Till you forgive again I'll never live again So will it be as long as we are far apart. It may be vanity to think you’ll come to me But is it vanity to hide a broken heart?… But is it vanity to hide a broken, a broken heart? NOTES: < Vanity > was released as the 'A' side of a Columbia single June 1951. The 'B' side was < My Reverie > (see elsewhere in this ILP database). Sarah Vaughn, an American jazz singer who performed professionally from 1945 to 1990, was nicknamed ‘Sassy’ because of her rather informal speech and manner. The NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Jazz Masters bestowed it’s highest award on her in 1989. (Transcribed by David Story - February 2014)
