WEEP NO MORE from "Along Fifth Avenue" 1949 Review New York (Gordon Jenkins (m) Tom Adair (l) 1948) as recorded by Billie Holiday & The Stadusters Dec 10th 1948 New York [bh] I'm just about fed up, I've had my fill Of sitting 'round and crying in my beer. I've drunk the bitter cup, I've downed the bitter pill, While waiting for the silver lining to appear. I'm going to stack my blues up On the very highest shelf. I'm going to pack my blues up And get wise to myself. [st] Weep no more, my baby! Weep no more, my baby! [bh] Weep no more, I'm going to weep no more, I'm putting an end to this lonesome game, [st] It's such a lonesome game, this crying! [bh] Cry no tears, I'm going to cry no tears Each time that I happen to hear his name. [st] I hear his name! [bh] I'm going out on the town, This hopeless torch I will drown, 'Cause I'm tired of running around, [st] Running around, [bh] With just a memory. Weep no more, I'm going to weep no more Till somebody weeps, [st] Until somebody weeps [bh] For me! [st] I'm going to stack my blues up On the very highest shelf. I'm going to pack my blues up And get wise to myself. [bh] Weep no more, I'm going to weep no more Till somebody weeps for me! [st] Weep no more! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2013)
