YOU LET ME DOWN Harry Warren (m) Al Dubin (l) 1935 Billie Holiday w Teddy Wilson & his Orch rec Dec 3rd 1935 New York also- Jimmy Dorsey & his Orch '35 Jimmie Lunceford & his Orch You told me I was Like an angel, Told me I was fit to wear a crown; So that you could get a thrill, You put mre on a pedestal, And then you let me down, let me down! You told me that I'd be wearin' diamonds, I would have the smartest car in town; Made me think that I'm the top, And then you let the ladder drop, You know you let me down, let me down! I walked upon a rainbow, I clung onto a star, You had me up in heaven, that's why I had to fall so far! I was even lookin' for a cottage, I was measured for a weddin' gown; That's how I got cynical, You put me on a pinnacle, And then you let me down, let me down! Ah, you let me down!
