HAPPY DAYS AND LONELY NIGHTS
(Billy Rose)
THE FONTANE SISTERS (DOT 15171, 1954)

With the parting of the ways
You took all my happy days
And left me lonely nights
Morning never comes too soon
I can face the afternoon
But oh, those lonely nights
I feel your arms around me
Your kisses linger yet
You taught me how to love you
Now teach me to forget
You broke my heart a million ways
When you took my happy days
And left me lonely nights

Now, with the parting of the ways
You took all my happy days
And left me only lonely nights
Morning never comes too soon
I can face the afternoon
But oh, those lonely nights
I feel your arms around me
Your kisses linger yet
You taught me how to love you
Now teach me to forget
You broke my heart a million ways
When you took those happy days
And left me lonely nights

You broke my heart a million ways
When you took those happy days
And left me lonely nights
