She Didn't Say Yes

She Didn't Say Yes

(Jerome Kern / Otto Harbach)


Roy Fox and his Band. Al Bowlly as one of trio


She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No'
She didn't say 'Stay', she didn't say 'Go'
She only knew that he had spied her there
And then she knew he sat beside her there

At first there was heard not one little word
Then coyly she took one sly little look
Then something awoke and smiled inside
Her heart began beating wild inside

So, what did she do, I leave it to you
She did just what you'd do, too

She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No'
She wanted to stay, but knew she should go
She wasn't so sure that he'd be good
She wasn't even sure that she'd be good

She wanted to rest, all cuddled and pressed
A palpable part of somebody's heart
She'd love to be au rapport with him
But not behind a bolted with him

So, what did she do, I leave it to you
She did just what you'd do, too
