Leave The Rest To Nature

(Billy Cotton / Cyril Grantham)


Al Bowlly acc. by Claude Ivy (pno)

Her fingers are stained with a cigarette
She's cool and collected and cute to peg
Easy to look at but hard to get
A little modern miss
Young man you love but you will find
Although you may plead, still she doesn't mind
She'll never be yours till the town's behind?
That's why I say this

Take her to a shady little spot
Some sweet place the world has quite forgot
Don't say a work, Just listen to the bluebirds
And Leave The Rest To Nature

Let the breeze, as it whispers overhead
Say the things, you had to leave unsaid
Don't even sigh, but twinkle in the twilight
And Leave The Rest To Nature

Let the nightingales sing for you
It's song will please your soul(cause)?
And you'll find, it will win for you
Another step, till when she's yours
And at last when she's about to fall
Don't rush in for that will end it all
Just hold her tight and wait for a spot of moonlight
And Leave The Rest To Nature
