Don't Say Goodbye

Don't Say Goodbye

("Wild Violets" Robert Stolz)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

Don't Say Goodbye
Somehow it's wrong
Clouds in the sky
Aren't there for long
A blackbird can sing
Of good days in store
When Spring, will bring
The flowers once more

Don't look so sad
Just think of when
Good days we've had
Come around again
There not far away
There's no need to sigh
We don't have to say goodbye
