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 Who's burdened down with care; A load is on his mind. He's thinking of the day When he must pass away And leave his wealth behind. I haven't any gold To leave when I grow old; Somehow it passed me by. I'm very poor, but still I'll leave a precious will When I must say goodbye. I'll leave the sunshine to the flowers, I'll leave the springtime to the trees; And to the old folks I'll leave the mem'ries Of a baby upon their knees. I'll leave the nighttime to the dreamers, I'll leave the songbirds to the blind; I'll leave the moon above To those in love When I leave the world behind, When I leave the world behind. To ev'ry wrinkled face I'll leave a fireplace To paint their fav'rite scene: Within the golden rays Scenes of their childhood days When they were sweet sixteen. I'll leave them each a song To sing the whole day long As toward the end they plod. To ev'ry broken heart With sorrow torn apart I'll leave the love of God. I'll leave the sunshine to the flowers, I'll leave the springtime to the trees; And to the old folks I'll leave the mem'ries Of a baby upon their knees. I'll leave the nighttime to the dreamers, I'll leave the songbirds to the blind; I'll leave the moon above To those in love When I leave the world behind, When I leave the world behind.
