WHEN I LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND (Irving Berlin) Al Jolson - 1915 Henry Burr - 1915 Sam Ash - 1915 Eddie Fisher - 1954 Lee Wiley - 1971 Jeanie Stahl - 1983 Sonny Knowles - 1990 Tony Kenny - 1991 Pat Roper - 1993 Also recorded by: Hadda Brooks; Rose Marie, Teresa Brewer. I know a millionaire Whoís burdened down with care; A load is on his mind. Heís thinking of the day When he must pass away And leave his wealth behind. I havenít any gold To leave when I grow old; Somehow it passed me by. Iím very poor, but still Iíll leave a precious will When I must say goodbye. Iíll leave the sunshine to the flowers, Iíll leave the springtime to the trees; And to the old folks Iíll leave the memíries Of a baby upon their knees. Iíll leave the nighttime to the dreamers, Iíll leave the songbirds to the blind; Iíll leave the moon above To those in love When I leave the world behind, When I leave the world behind. To evíry wrinkled face Iíll leave a fireplace To paint their favírite scene: Within the golden rays Scenes of their childhood days When they were sweet sixteen. Iíll leave them each a song To sing the whole day long As toward the end they plod. To evíry broken heart With sorrow torn apart Iíll leave the love of God. Iíll leave the sunshine to the flowers, Iíll leave the springtime to the trees; And to the old folks Iíll leave the memíries Of a baby upon their knees. Iíll leave the nighttime to the dreamers, Iíll leave the songbirds to the blind; Iíll leave the moon above To those in love When I leave the world behind, When I leave the world behind.
