[Ella]
April skies are in your eyes
But darling, don't be blue

Don't cry,
Oh honey please
Don't be that way

Clouds in the sky
Should never make you feel that way

The rain
Will bring the violets of May
Tears are in vain So honey please don't be that way

As long as we
See it through
You'll have me
I'll have you

Sweetheart
Tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart
Oh honey, please don't be that way

[Louis]
Don't cry,
Oh honey please
Don't be that way

Clouds in the sky
Should never make you feel that way

The rain
Will bring the violets of May
Tears in vain
So honey please don't be that way

As long as we
Will see it through
You'll have me
And I'll have you

Sweetheart
Tomorrow is another day
Don't break my heart
Oh honey, please don't be that way

Don't cry


Don't cry, don't cry


Oh honey, please don't be that way

Oh honey, please don't be that way

Clouds in the sky

Dig those crazy sky

Should never make you feel that way

So don't be that way

Dig the rain

Pitter pitter pitter pitter patter

Bring the violets of May

Pitter patter of the rain drops

Tears in vain

Tears, tears

So honey please don't be that way

Don't be that way

As long as we
(scat)
Will see it through
(scat)
Oh baby, you'll have me
(scat)
And I'll have you
(scat)
Sweetheart
(scat)
Tomorrow is another day

Tomorrow is another day


Don't break my heart
(scat)
Oh honey, please don't be that way
(scat)
Looky here, baby don't cry
(scat)
Oh honey, please don't be that way
(scat)
Clouds in the sky
(scat)
Should never make you feel that way
(scat)
Yeah, don't cry
(scat)
Honey, please don't be that way
(scat)
Clouds in the sky
(scat)
Oh honey, please don't be that way
No honey, I'll never be that way
