MAN IN THE RAINCOAT, THE (Warwick Webster) Priscilla Wright (with the Don Wright Septette) - 1955 Marion Marlowe - 1955 Lita Roza - 1955 Claudine Longet - 1967 Yvonne Roome - 1991 Late in the evening, out in the square A man in a raincoat, standing there We met by the lamp where the newsboy cries He stole my heart with his laughing eyes We smiled as we climbed on the old streetcar I blushed when he asked, "Are you travelling far?" The next time we met, the sun shone all day We walked and we talked till the evening was grey He took me dancing, dancing till dawn No happier couple had ever been born I felt lke a queen and he was my king He borrowed some money to buy me a ring But I'm still alone, the cards are all down He's taken my money and skipped out of town Now when I pass the place where we met I'm wondering if I would forgive and forget Though bitter is my heart and foolishly proud I still keep on looking when out in a crowd For a man in a raincoat standing there With laughing eyes and dark brown hair Mmmmm-mmmm-mmmm-mmmm...........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
