Since I Kissed My Baby Goodbye

Fred Astaire


Verse

Oh, what nights, glory be,
When my baby and me
Used to ramble lovers' lane
From sundown to dawn.
Then a voodoo, I guess,
Put the jinx on our happiness,
And the mockin'bird's refrain
Is done dead and gone.

Refrain

Evenin' creepin' down the mountain,
Wakes up Mister Firefly,
Bullfrog, settin' there,
Starts a-croakin', but I don't care,
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.
South wind shakes the ole magnolia,
Moon-man light the dingy sky,
Stars start sprinklin' gold
On the river, but still I'm cold
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.
Since my baby and me
Parted company,
I can't see what's the diff if I live or I die.
Oh Lawd, I'm takin' such a beatin',
I'm no good, even cheatin',
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.
